CHOICE Review

Delgado (Pennsylvania State Univ.) provides a fascinating examination of Chinese immigrants living in the US-Mexico borderlands during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. According to the author, the experience of Chinese immigrants living in Mexico emphasizes the transnational nature of the region by highlighting the connections between nations, empires, and global migrations. In general, Delgado concentrates on three primary topics: the lived experiences of Chinese immigrants as they established new connections with other fronterizos (people living in the borderland region) and maintained old connections with China; the changing nature of US immigration policy, such as the Chinese Exclusion Act of 1882 and the National Origins Act of 1924, and its uneven enforcement; and the effects of Mexico's anti-Chinese movement and post-Revolutionary Mexican constructs of race, nationalism, and citizenship on Chinese fronterizos. Overall, Delgado provides a well-researched, significant addition to borderland history and an excellent example of the growing trend toward transnational examinations of borderland regions around the world. Summing Up: Recommended. All academic levels/libraries. C. L. Sinclair University of North Texas
