BOOK DESCRIPTION

ENVISIONING AMERICA is a groundbreaking and richly detailed study of how naturalized Chinese living in Southern California become highly involved civic and political actors. Like other immigrants to the United States, their individual life stories are of survival, becoming, and belonging. But unlike any other Asian immigrant group before them, they have the resources - Western-based educations, entrepreneurial strengths, and widely based social networks in Asia - to become fully accepted in their new homes.
