Opening The Gates To Asia
A Transpacific History Of How America Repealed Asian Exclusion
de Jane H. Hong
Sobre o livro
Much is known about America's history of Asian immigrant exclusion laws, but how did these laws end? Why did the US begin opening its borders to Asians after barring them for decades? Jane Hong argues that the transpacific movement to repeal Asian exclusion was part of US empire-building efforts and the rise of a new informal US empire in Asia.
