About this title


Iris Chang made headlines in 1997 with the publication of The Rape of Nanking-a meticulously researched and brilliantly rendered examination of the sacking of that great city by the Japanese during World War II. Many readers of The Rape of Nanking responded to its themes of the fight for justice and the assertion of cultural identity-themes Chang expands upon in her new book.

Chang, the daughter of second-wave Chinese immigrants, has written an extraordinary narrative that encompasses the entire history of one of the fastest growing ethnic groups in the United States, an epic story that spans 150 years and continues to the present day. Chang takes a fresh look at what it means to be an American and draws a complex portrait of the many accomplishments of the Chinese in their adopted country, from building the transcontinental railroad to major scientific and technological advances. A sensitive, deeply moving story of individuals whose lives have shaped and been shaped by this history, The Chinese in America is a saga of raw human tenacity and a testament to the determination of a people to forge an identity and destiny in a strange land.

About the Author:

Iris Chang, author of Thread of the Silkworm as well as The Rape of Nanking, is the recipient of the MacArthur Foundation's Program on Peace and International Cooperation Award as well as the Woman of the Year Award from the Organization of Chinese Americans.
