Reviews status in these years appear misunderstood. But overall this is an important book from a first-rate scholar with an accomplished and intriguing take on major (and minor) works in China's twentieth-century canon. This gem of a book is ill-served by a dull and ugly cover, which allows it to disappear on a bookshelf. It deserves considerable prominence in any work on twentieth-century China. Paul Clark Paul Clark, of the University of Auckland, is the author of Reinventing China: A Generation and Its Films (2005) on the fifth-generation films, and The Chinese Cultural Revolution: A History (Cambridge University Press, 2008), a cultural history of those years. Shehong Chen. Being Chinese, Becoming Chinese American. Champaign, IL: University of Illinois Press, 2002. xiii, 239 pp. Paperback $25.00, Isbn 0252073894. Hardcover $39.00, Isbn 0252027361. The process of becoming a Chinese American is elegantly encapsulated in two quotations, one at the beginning and one at the end of Being Chinese, Becoming Chinese American. The author of this book, Shenong Chen, in chapter 1 quotes from Young China: If we Chinese wish to defend ourselves against such discrimination [USA's Chinese exclusion legislation], we must first of all restore our national independence. . .
