Ethnic Oasis explores how the Chinese met the challenge of living and working in a land much different from their own.

Peeling away the layers of myth surrounding this fabled street, Fraser shows that the remarkable transformation of Wall Street as a cultural icon is a story that goes to the heart of the American character.
