"A Chinaman's Chance" For Chinese-Americans

Public Affairs Books

Chinese-Americans walked a long road to get to where they are today. 

Our own region's history has a significant chapter including Chinese people and their frequent mistreatment. 

Now Chinese-Americans are ascendant in many fields, at the very time that China itself is rising as a world power. 

Eric Liu ponders the parallels and more in his book of essays, A Chinaman's Chance: One Family's Journey and the Chinese American Dream.
