Editorial Reviews

Review

"This is a tremendous resource for those who wish to gain a deeper understanding of the Chinese American experience. -- Journal of American Ethnic History

  1. "Chinese American Voices offers general audiences accessible and engrossing narratives and provides faculty committed to using primary sources in the classroom a wealth of excellent material." -- Journal of San Diego History


"The editors have done an exemplary job of finding and including pieces that offer diverse perspectives on particular moments in history.... The volume adds nuance and depth to ongoing scholarship that contradicts the longstanding "sojourner" myth, suggesting instead that Chinese Americans were regularly active and outspoken participants in the shaping of U.S. history." --Southern California Quarterly

"This volume sets a new milestone in the field of Chinese American studies."--"Western Folklore"

From the Inside Flap

"Skillfully selected, translated, and annotated, this compelling compendium of voices bear witness to the diversity and depth of the Chinese American experience and, significantly, its indispensable centrality to American life and history."—Gary Y. Okihiro, author of Common Ground: Reimagining American History

"Here at last is a wide-ranging record of Chinese American experiences from the viewpoints of the players. Chinese American Voices is an impressive feat of scholarship, an indispensable reference, and a compelling read."—Ruthanne Lum McCunn, author of Thousand Pieces of Gold and The Moon Pearl

"This anthology offers a virtual "Gam Saan" (Gold Mountain) of original sources. The stories burst with telling and re-affirm a vision of men and women as actors in history, who made themselves as Chinese Americans as they helped to make America itself."—Ronald Takaki, author of Strangers from a Different Shore: A History of Asian Americans

"This volume of sixty-two annotated documents, many translated from Chinese for the first time, is a boon to faculty and students interested in Chinese American history, Asian American history, U.S. immigration history, and race and ethnic relations. The life stories, in particular, are appealing for students, the reading public, and scholars alike as they hear the voices of individuals long misunderstood, denigrated, and silenced. All of us owe a debt of gratitude to the three editors for their dedicated labor of love."—Sucheng Chan, author of Chinese American Transnationalism: The Flow of People, Resources, and Ideas between China and America during the Exclusion Era

"This is a superb collection."—Roger Daniels, author of Guarding the Golden Door: American Immigration Policy and Immigrants since 1882
