“Employing previously undiscovered Chinese sources, this masterful book tells a story about the Chinese in Mexico from the late nineteenth century until the present day. By carrying the story through the postwar period, Fredy González is able to trace the remarkable decline and rebirth of the Chinese community in Mexico in the context of internecine politics in the Republic of China and the People’s Republic of China.”—Elliott Young, author of Alien Nation: Chinese Migration in the Americas from the Coolie Era through World War II
“This book will be widely sought after by everyone interested in the contemporary relationship between the two Chinas and Mexico. No other work so clearly illustrates the troubled development of this transpacific bond. The political turmoil among Chinese Mexicans during the Cold War reveals a history of competing Chinese nationalities and a passionate reckoning with the boundaries of Mexican national identity.”—Jason Oliver Chang, author of Chino: Anti-Chinese Racism in Mexico, 1880–1940
