Synopsis

Chinese Immigrants, African Americans, and Racial Anxiety in the United States, 1848-82 by Najia Aarim

A holistic look at the roots of American Sinophobia and its historical parallels

Reviews

This book provides a new framework for understanding nineteenth century anti-Chinese sentiment. Aarim-Hariot's research and the way she connects her sources should help historians think about racism beyond the biracial paradigm which has entrenched us for too long. --Left History
