Many Americans know about the "first wave" of Chinese immigrants, who worked on the railroads, mined for gold, and built Chinatowns. Less known is the "second wave" -- most of whom came to the U.S. as students in the 1950s and 1960s, spoke Mandarin, and earned advanced degrees. Although most found professional jobs, they were cut off from their native country and worried about relatives left behind after the revolution. This ground-breaking book collects the bittersweet stories of 35 people from this "second wave" generation of Chinese Americans, who tell about their lives in their own voices. Hard-bound versions of this book will be available by July 1. Contact East West Insights to order.
