Summary Haseltine's directory is designed primarily to contribute to the study of Asian immigration, assimilation, and ethnic distinctiveness. The cultural groups Haseltine examines are Chinese, Japanese, Filipino, and Korean peoples, whose migration across the Pacific began in the mid- and late 1800s. Separate chapters treat artifacts, sites, and traditions of special significance to Asian immigrants to North America. This book is an excellent reference for those interested in the immigration and culture of Asian-Americans and will be an excellent resource for courses in Asian history in North America.
