China Men is the story of a group of Chinese American youths who come of age in the 1980s and 1990s. The novel charts their struggles as they navigate the challenges of their families and communities, and the larger social and political changes taking place in America during that time.

The book is written in an engaging and readable style, and it provides a vivid portrayal of the experiences and emotions of the characters. China Men is an important book not only because it is a compelling story, but also because it provides a unique and insightful perspective on the experiences of Chinese American youths during a time of great change.; 8vo; FSA.
