Inhaltsangabe: Over the past century, Chinese immigrants to Prince Edward Island and their descendents have suffered racism and poverty, but they are proud today to be recognized as true islanders. From the arrival of the first Chinese immigrants in the late nineteenth century to the blossoming of a vibrant community in the twenty-first, Hung-Min Chiang describes how the Chinese of Prince Edward Island have adapted to world events and shifts in immigration law. He discusses the effects of the infamous "head tax" as well as the more severe Chinese Immigration Act (known to those affected as the "Chinese Expulsion Act"). He also includes family histories of prominent early immigrants, highlighting the trials and the extraordinary achievements of one of the Island's smallest ethnic group.
Über den Autor: Dr. Hung-Min Chiang came to Prince Edward Island from Taiwan with his family in 1967. He taught psychology at Prince of Wales College and the University of Prince Edward Island, and until his retirement in 1991, he was one of UPEI's most popular professors.
