105. U.S.-China World Through Its Writers
This article examines briefly the history of Chinese American literature from current to the first day when the Chinese stepped on the soil of North America. According to the author, in the time when increasing globalized commerce and Olympiad competition between the United States and China, "literature may appear as the odd one in the race." However, the literature--writing of the Chinese of America will provide us with the insights through which we can look into "the shifts of Sino-American relations in the past, and inform American and Chinese readers in the present."
