Synopsis: A SWEEPING PORTRAIT OF ONE OF AMERICA'S MOST DISTINCTIVE COMMUNITIES FROM THE BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF THE NEW CHINATOWN From award-winning author Peter Kwong and Dusanka Miscevic comes a definitive portrait of Chinese Americans, one of the oldest immigrant groups and fastest-growing communities in the United States. Beginning with stories of Chinese frontiersmen who came to the West Coast by the thousands in the mid-nineteenth century and continuing to the high-tech transnationals who have helped spark the development of today's booming Chinese American ethnoburbs, this engrossing narrative recounts stories of extraordinary hardship, discrimination, and success. Chinese America is a landmark analysis that draws on firsthand reporting in Asia and the U.S. Offering a new picture of the country's development, Kwong and Miscevic provide the first comprehensive report on the suburban immigrant communities that are transforming America. Chinese Americans no live in the suburbs in similar proportions to whites - and have brought with them Chinese supermarket chains, language schools, and growing clout in America and Asia. Exploring the burgeoning trade - and underlying conflicts - between China and the U.s., Chinese America reveals the complex connections between immigration, globalization, and foreign policy in our time.

About the Author: Peter Kwong is the author of several books, including Chinatown, NY and Forbidden Workers. He is a professor of Urban Studies at Hunter College. Dusanka Miscevic is a writer and translator with a Ph.D. from Columbia University. Both live in New York City.
