This document collection examines how the interplay of economic distress, racism, and political ambition led to Chinese exclusion by identifying some of the key actors, analysing the arguments they made for the necessity of exclusion, and examining the political factors that led Congress to act. Students will develop the historical thinking skills of causation, comparison, continuity and change over time, and argumentation.
