Before social media there were cartoons in newspapers and periodicals. These graphic depictions of Chinese in the 19th century provide an immediate sense of how they were viewed and portrayed in the media at that time.

Great book...not classic research work, but pictures and cartoons of racist America..

This book is a well researched and complied in the eyes of White America. They were welcomed to come to help as cheap labor in developing the West Coast. They contributed greatly in railroad building for the West commerce and development. The California mood changed with Denis Kearney's "Chinese must go" campaign rally. It ended with Congress 1882 Chinese Exclusion Act to prevent Chinese labors from coming. This book rounded up then current mainstream cartoons in viewing the Chinese.

Of interesting was one: a Chinese convert asked the White pastor why we can enter Kingdom of Heaven but not America? The reply was: Kingdom does not have Workman Party members! Another one was the pig-tailed Chinese screaming as Republicans and Democrats tightened their wooden grip on him, meaning Chinese being victimized and suffered by two party politics without political power. History repeats itself with Dr Wen Ho Lee, an accused felon with 59 charges for losing the crown jewel of rocket secret. It ended up with an unusual presiding Judge Parker apologizing to this "criminal".

This book showed the history of bias and discrimination against Chinese in 19th Century. In 2010 Congress issue a regret of over 2000 words in the tragic killings and lynchings and the 1882 Chinese Exclusion, but fall short of an apology. However, a new century brings about change for the better with Chinese-American governor, mayors in San Francisco and Oakland, members in Congress, university chancellors, scientists and Nobel Prize winners.

This book records an important Chinese-American history chapter. Be aware that the politicians accuse Chinese cheap labor takes away American jobs! This kind of sensational political talk in election is cheap for political gain. This book help remember history to prevent from repeating again.

We get a glimpse into the political/racial climate of 19th century America through cartoons and illustrations of the period. The Chinese were seen either as heathens to be spit upon or superintelligent monsters threatening the livelyhood of "real" Americans. In light of our current political tensions with Mainland China and the scapegoating of Dr. Wen Ho Lee , we must ask ourselves, how much has really changed?
