Three Tough Chinamen (Paperback)
|Author: Scott D. Seligman|
From the Publisher:
Hemmed in by prejudice and restrictive laws, Chinese Americans lived in a defensive crouch at the turn of the 20th century. This is the true story of three scrappy and ambitious brothers who fought hard for their share of the American dream. Activists who rose to prominence and spoke out against injustice, these men made waves and broke barriers; they defied laws to defend their interests and tore down the walls that separated them from the rest of society. Exciting and informative, this history weaves the tale of Chinese immigrants with the larger relationship between China and the United States during that time.
