Member Query: seeking sources on Chinese migration to US

Shira Klein's picture

Hello, could anyone recommend a short (up to 30 pages) survey of Chinese migration to the U.S., which includes mention of the 1882 Exclusion Act? I am teaching an undergraduate class on migration history and have one unit on Chinese migrants. I've been using a chapter from Kuhn's Chinese Among Others but it's a bit scattered (talks about Australia, which is irrelevant to my course) so I'm looking for a replacement. Ok for it to be about migration to California only. I'm hoping for a broad synthetic secondary source - like an essay in a "Routledge History Of" type of book. 

Please email me privately. I'm happy to share a summary of the suggestions I get, to anyone interested.

Thank you! Shira Klein sklein@chapman.edu
