PLAGUE, FEAR, AND POLITICS IN SAN FRANCISCO'S CHINATOWN
Lasting four years, the plague in San Francisco's Chinatown reignited racial prejudices, renewed efforts to remove the Chinese from their district, and created new tensions among local, state and federal public health officials quarreling over the presence of the disease. This work offers insight into the clash of Eastern and Western cultures in a time of a medical emergency. Photos.
