  • Descrição: This article is concerned with the Chinese immigrants who migrated from the Guangdong province of China around the middle of the nineteenth century to the state of California. I have elaborated upon the contribution which the Chinese had made to this frontier region at a time when its population was not even half a million, of how these men performed labour in fields where the white worker refused to work, created conditions for the establishment of several of California’s nascent industries, and provided cheap, steady and sober labour to their white employers. This was the period when intense racism was the norm rather than an exception, and Asians were considered an inferior species, incapable and unworthy of enjoying any civil or political rights.
