Abstract
  • This annotated bibliography contains selected United States Federal public documents relating to the Chinese Exclusion laws. These laws which prohibited the immigration of Chinese into the United States were in force from 1882 until 1943. The initial exclusion law was the first immigration legislation to restrict a group based solely on race and significantly contributed to the racially based immigration policy of the United States in the twentieth century. Composed primarily of legislation, treaties, committee reports and documents from the House and Senate, this bibliography is intended to aid the research of this important period of United States immigration policy.
