Editorial Reviews


"A fascinating account of musical life in San Francisco's Chinatown district. From the first immigrations of of Chinese during the Gold Rush years and well into the 20th century, the musical life of San Francisco's Chinese has been been heavily involved with Catonese opera. ... Riddle's book is a satisfying combination of field study, close analytical study of musical customs, and interestingly written accounts of Chinese Americans. There is a very helpful bibliography.... Flying Dragons, Flowing Streams is a valuable addition to the growing number of studies of music of various ethnic communities in the US. Recommended highly for public as well as academic music libraries, lower-division undergraduate level and above." -- Choice
