In this contribution to the study of ethnic minorities, Chalsa Loo documents a distinctive American community - Chinatown, San Francisco. Based on an interview survey of residents of Chinatown, Loo's study tests prevailing sociological and psychological theories, and ultimately dispels stereotypes about Asian Americans, replacing them with empirically derived realities of American life. Chinatown: Most Time, Hard Time comprehensively covers a range of significant areas of life, integrating several disciplines and combining the rigour of scientific analysis with the richness of individual experience through the use of photographs and personal vignettes.
