Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0919013465, Paperback)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.
