Research

I am currently working on two new projects. The first, The Moys of New York and Shanghai: A Chinese American Family in War and Revolution (University of California Press, forthcoming in 2025) follows six Chinese American siblings and their spouses from the turn of the twentieth century through the early Cold War years.

The second, Selling America in China, is a scholarly study of the promoters, diplomats, and small businesspeople who sold American products and ideas in and to republican China.
