2010.056.005 Book The United States is being engulfed by the greatest wave of immigration it has ever faced. The latest immigrants are different from those who came before. These newcomers are less educated, less skilled, more prone to trouble with the law, less inclined to share American culture and values, and altogether less likely to become Americans in name or spirit. Brimelow believes that we cannot continue to admit millions of legal and illegal immigrants if we wish to maintain our standard of living and our national identity. Unless we restore immigration to its more traditional role, he says, the United States risks being turned into an alien nation.

2010.056.013 Book From 1954 until Mao Zedong's death twenty-two years later, Dr. Li Zhisui was the Chinese ruler's personal physician, which put him in almost daily - and increasingly intimate - contact with Mao and his inner circle. For most of these years, Mao's health was excellent; thus he and the doctor had time to discuss political and personal matters. Dr. Li recorded many of these conversations in his diaries as well as in his memory. In The Private Life of Chairman Mao he vividly reconstructs his extraordinary experience. The result is a book that will profoundly alter our view of Chairman Mao and of China under his rule." "Dr. Li clarifies numerous long-standing puzzles, such as the true nature of Mao's feelings toward the United States and the Soviet Union. He describes Mao's deliberate rudeness toward Khrushchev when the Soviet leader paid his secret visit to Beijing in 1958, and we learn here, for the first time, how Mao came to invite the American table tennis team to China, a decision that led to Nixon's historic visit a few months later. We also learn why Mao took the disastrous Great Leap Forward, which resulted in the worst famine in recorded history, and his equally strange reason for risking war with the United States by shelling the Taiwanese islands of Quemoy and Matsu." "Dr. Li supplies surprising portraits of Zhou Enlai and many other top leaders. He describes Mao's perverse relationship with his wife, and gives us insight into the sexual politics of Mao's court. We witness Mao's bizarre death and the even stranger events that followed it. Dr. Li tells of Mao's remarkable gift for intimacy, as well as of his indifference to the suffering and deaths of millions of his fellow Chinese, including old comrades. Readers will find here a full and accurate account of Mao's sex life, and of such personal details as his peculiar sleeping arrangements and his dependency on barbiturates.

2010.056.021 Book Gwen Kinkead's fascinating book is an explanation of a mystery: Chinatown. In the first book in fifty years to break the code of silence about New York's Chinatown, Kinkead offers us an intimate portrait of an exciting community that is also one of the most insular and, until now, enigmatic in the world. New York City's Chinatown is the largest in the Western Hemisphere, a vibrant, chaotic little piece of China entirely segregated from the United States. Against all odds, Kinkead managed to get recent immigrants to Chinatown to speak to her--an astonishing feat for a low faan (a barbarian, white person) with a notepad. Her portraits of Chinatown's invisible people are intriguing. They work in its garment factories and restaurants, where child labor laws seem not to obtain; they do not speak English and have no desire or opportunity to learn the language; they rarely, if ever, venture outside Chinatown's boundaries and have no interest in the American world surrounding their enclave. Kinkead describes their family associations, the tongs, and the gangs they employ to extort and murder. She charts the growth of Chinese organized crime, now smuggling in half the heroin in the United States. She illuminates the Chinese work ethic, their attitude toward money, the extended-family obligations, their traditions of concubinage, the Chinese penchant for gambling, their newspapers--owned by Chinese in Asia who determine what is reported and how--the importance of food, Chinatown's millionaires, and more. A rich, eye-opening account of a little-known community, Chinatown is also a provocative reflection on assimilation and racism in this country.

A sensitive, deeply moving story of individuals whose lives have shaped and been shaped by this history, The Chinese in America is a saga of raw human tenacity and a testament to the determination of a people to forge an identity and destiny in a strange land.

2010.058.003 Book Stella Dong's biography of Shanghai explains precisely why a missionary once declared, "If God lets Shanghai endure, he owes an apology to Sodom and Gomorrah." The greatest metropolis in Asia during its heyday - from the turn of the nineteenth century until Mao's army swept away its decadence in 1949 - this corrupt, pleasure mad, and squalor-ridden city combined the exuberant vulgarity of Rio during Mardi Gras with a Wild West lawlessness." "Dong chronicles how a wilderness of swamps was transformed into a dazzling, modern-day Babylon. The sickly sweet smell of opium permeated every lane and side street, and in its myriad fleshpots labored a tragic army of prostitutes and "taxi dancers." Seductive and cruel, Shanghai was no place for the innocent: a powerful criminal underworld controlled the port in league with the city's wealthiest citizens and military satraps. Along with its predatory climate, Shanghai was the most turbulent spot in the Orient, for war, rebellion, and economic disaster were never far from its door.

The authors called their anthology Aiiieeeee! because that was the shout, the scream, often the only sound coming from the yellow man or woman in American movies, television, or comic books. But as that work demonstrated, the Asian American writer, long ignored and excluded from participating in American culture, has an articulate and creative voice.

2010.058.016 Book Here is a true story, woven from letters, photographs, and memories, with more twists and turns than any novel. It is a story of the lives of one family living on two different sides of the globe: in a village in South China before and after the Communists took power, and in the gritty Chinatowns on North America's west coast. The "at-home" wife would hold sacred the honor of the family; supporting her was the concubine who sacrificed her own family in working the tea houses abroad, in "Gold Mountain." In tow was her youngest daughter, the author's mother. It was she who unlocked the past for her daughter, whose curiosity about some old photographs ultimately reunited this family, who had been divided for most of this century.

Wittman is (naturally, given the time and place) a rebel. But, like Monkey - the blessed saint-troublemaker of Chinese legend who helped bring the Buddhist scriptures from India, and to whom our hero bears more than a passing resemblance - Wittman is a rebel with a cause.
