CHINATOWN, U.S.A.

This is primarily a photographic book, but, for me at least, the excellent forward, with its analysis of the Chinese in this country, gives it more significance than it would have if only the very appealing pictures were concerned. For the pictures put ""best foot foremost"" and show the side of the Chinese in America that is picturesque, colorful, attractive- and not the aspects of their life here that she touches upon in her text,- the racial discrimination, the sordid surroundings in which many of them have to live, the kinds of jobs and working conditions under which they operate, and so on. She comments on the changes since the war and discusses the outlook ahead.
