Description

Lui delves into the politics of a notorious murder case in 19th century New York City, exposing the white-supremacist and male-supremacist agendas at work in the public policing of social relations between Chinese and white people. The book sets the case in its social, political, cultural and historical context and uses it as a case study to examine the wider ramifications of anti-Chinese racism for American society.
