Chinese Immigrants African Americans, and Racial Anxiety in the United States, 1848-82. Examines the link between the Chinese question and the Negro problem in nineteenth-century America. This work demonstrates that the anti-Chinese sentiment that led up to the passage of the Chinese Exclusion Act of 1882 is inseparable from the racial double standards applied by mainstream white society toward white and nonwhite groups.
