Because past perspectives on Chinese Americans have relied mainly on English-language sources, “they seldom reflected the attitudes and experiences of the Chinese themselves,” according to historian and bibliographer Him Mark Lai. The purpose of A History Reclaimed is to help remedy this situation. This bibliography lists over 1,500 available works on Chinese in America, which can be found in libraries and institutions in the United States.
