Released on the 100th anniversary of the Angel Island Immigration Center, Angel Island: Immigrant Gateway to America chronicles the complex multi-ethnic history of this immigration processing and detention center between 1910 and 1940. Through use of extensive new research and oral history, the authors "examine the great diversity of immigration through Angel Island: Chinese 'paper sons,' Japanese picture brides, Korean refugee students, South Asian political activists, Russian and Jewish refugees, Mexican families, Filipino workers, and many others. Together, their stories offer a more complete and complicated history of immigration to America than we have ever known" (Oxford University Press).
Judy Yung and Erika Lee have graciously added a talk here at the University of San Diego to their already busy book tour schedule. We are extremely excited to welcome them to our university and hope you and your students will join us at this presentation.
