Iris Chang on The Chinese in America

Irvine -- The turbulent history of Chinese in America is explored in a new 496-page heavily footnoted book by Iris Chang, The Chinese in America, just out from Viking.

Chang, a former journalist, discusses the racial divide that often pits federal authorities worried about yellow peril against the Chinese in America.

We chat with her next Tuesday, from 4-5 p.m., on the June 10, 2003 edition of Subversity, a KUCI public affairs program on KUCI, 88.9 fm in Orange County, California, and Web-cast via at the same time.

Chang is the author of Rape of Naking and also Thread of the Silkworm, about the father of China's missile program. She read for journalism at University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, worked as a news agency reporter in Chicago, and won a graduate fellowship at the writing program at Johns Hopkins University. She received numerous honors, including the John T. and Catherine D. MacArthur Foundation's Program on Peace and International Cooperation Award and a Woman of the Year Award from the Organization of Chinese Americans.
