    Today, China matters - all around the world. I love how the author Charles Yu was able to take his personal experiences as an Asian male in American society and transform Beyond Chinatown book into a social commentary of sorts, satirically poking fun at various cultural stereotypes, but in a way that is good-natured and respectful.

    With restricted immigration it shrunk again, becoming a strip of Chinese restaurants by the late s, when it was celebrated with Beyond Chinatown book arches, and with recent huge influx of students from mainland China is now the centre of a much larger area of noodle shops, travel agents, restaurants, and groceries. MELUS Beyond Literary Chinatown is highly recommended for readers interested in the politics of canon formation as well as in the ideological negotiations that must necessarily transpire as a 'minority' literature strives for topicality and relevance in both national and transnational contexts. Many of these frontier Chinatowns became extinct as American racism surged and the Chinese Exclusion Act was passed.

    Significant Chinatowns sprung up in Belleville and the 13th arrondissement of Paris. In the s the regional cooperative also imported water from Northern California via the State Water Project and the California Aqueduct. Thousands still leave China for the industrialized world, their freedom and livelihoods in pawn to people smugglers. A few days a week, Charlie assists at a neighborhood Tai Chi class conducted by her godmother.
