... this detailed account includes considerable information on acculturation, socio-economic status, community activities both social and business, and problems associated with race... Writing is clear, organization coherent, details richly documented and gently tied to prior history of mainland China so the book has special value to historians. * Psychological Reports *
Ng's analysis allows for a poignant human dimension to frame the inevitable passing of the old-timers' generation, and also explains why these organizations continues to exist ... This book is a welcome addition to studies of the Chinese in Vancouver, as this community continues to thrive on Canada's west coast. -- Paul Yee * British Columbia Historical News *
