The Chinese Exclusion Act: What It Can Teach Us about America

B. Railton, "The Chinese Exclusion Act: What It Can Teach Us about America"
English | ISBN: 1349464279 | 2013 | 74 pages | PDF | 2 MB

This book explores two critical strands in American Studies: policy conversations on legal and illegal immigration and social and educational conversations on diversity and multiculturalism. As author Benjamin Railton shows, a fresh look at the Chinese Exclusion Act overturns much of the received wisdom on immigration and American identity.
