Summary
"In October 1871, a simmering small-scale turf war involving three Chinese gangs exploded into a riot that engulfed Los Angeles. A large mob of white Angelenos rampaged through the small town, then mainly a ranching center of a few thousand souls, and tortured and lynched eighteen Chinese immigrants--among them a beloved doctor and several businessmen--before order and sanity were restored. In "The Chinatown War," Scott Zesch offers a white-knuckle account of this little known event"--Provided by publisher
