This illustrated volume presents the history of the Chinese American experience, from the role of Chinese tea in the American Revolution and the rich commercial and cultural interactions between China and the U.S., to an exploration of the practices and principles developed under Chinese Exclusion and their application to other cultural groups. This concise, illustrated history considers the legacy and lessons of this period in America’s history through photography, documents and historical objects. The catalogue was produced by the New-York Historical Society to accompany the exhibition Chinese American: Exclusion/Inclusion, now on view at the Chinese Historical Society of America. Author: John Kuo Wei Tchen. 80 pages.
