Chinese Americans.
Lyman, Stanford M.
This book on the Chinese Americans focuses on such aspects of intergroup relations, community characteristics, social problems, acculturation, racial and social discrimination, and economic opportunities for the ethnic group as: the Chinese diaspora; forerunners of overseas Chinese community organization; Chinese community organization in the United States; the anti-Chinese movement in the U.S., 1785-1910; institutional racism as relating to social discrimination and the legitimation of the ghetto in the period 1910-1943; the beginnings of a Chinese American middle class; social problems and community cooperatives; and, alienation, rebellion, and the new consciousness. A section on discriminatory practices against the Chinese discusses the paucity of women in the community; prostitution, gambling, and drugs; illegal immigration; delayed birth of a second generation; and the consolidation of Chinatown power elites. The sources of Chinese American success, occupations and professions, employment discrimination, and suburban Chinese American communities are dealt with in another section. A final chapter in summary and conclusion focuses on the Chinese in America and sociological theory. (Author/JM)
