Judy Yung, Professor of American Studies at the University of California, Santa Cruz, reviews Becoming Chinese American: A History of Communities and Institutions. This anthology looks at the geographic origins of Chinese immigration to the United States and their ethnic and migrant organizations. The chapters of the book discuss huiguan, native place and kinship organizations, and Chinese language schools. Yung declares this work extremely beneficial and pertinent to students or any scholar interested in Asian American history and culture, Chinese migration, history of the United States, or immigration.
