Description

"In Performing Chinatown, William Gow illuminates the history of the Chinese in the American imagination from Chinatown tours to portrayals of Chinese in motion pictures, and the ways in which the Los Angeles Chinatown community benefited from its proximity to and participation in Hollywood."—Lisa See, author of Lady Tan's Circle of Women

"In Performing Chinatown, William Gow illuminates the history of the Chinese in the American imagination from Chinatown tours to portrayals of Chinese in motion pictures, and the ways in which the Los Angeles Chinatown community benefited from its proximity to and participation in Hollywood."—Lisa See, author of Lady Tan's Circle of Women

"Performing Chinatown superbly weaves together social history and the history of cinema, grounded in Los Angeles in both space and time. Combining these two disparate historical approaches, this book is timely, thoughtful, and engaged historical scholarship."—William Deverell, University of Southern California

"A must-read for anyone interested in race, representation, and Asian American history. Taking to heart the voices and experiences of Chinese Americans, while refusing to shy away from difficult issues, William Gow's engaging writing expands our understanding of the seemingly ordinary people who create extraordinary communities on the ground and on-screen."—Catherine Ceniza Choy, author of Asian American Histories of the United States

William Gow is an Assistant Professor at California State University, Sacramento, and a community historian with the Chinese Historical Society of Southern California, a non-profit in Los Angeles Chinatown.
