Ethnic Enclave, Global Change
By (author) Jan Lin
Reconstructing Chinatown by Jan Lin
Book DescriptionIn the American popular imagination, Chinatown is a mysterious and dangerous place, clannish and dilapidated, filled with sweatshops, vice, and organizational crime. This volume presents a real-world picture of New York City's Chinatown, countering the "orientalist" view by looking at the human dimensions and the larger forces of globalization that make this neighbourhood both unique and broadly instructive.
