Race, Law and "The Chinese Puzzle" in Imperial Britain, written by Dr Sascha Auerbach has recently been issued  by Macmillain as a paperback publication.

Auerbach, a lecturer in the University of Nottingham's Department of History examines the historical evolution of Chinese communities in early twentieth-century Britain and their significance in the development of race as a category in British law, politics, and culture.

"This is a nuanced exploration of a distinct 'moment' in British culture, politics and racial relations . . . Scholars of Britishness/Englishness, as well as cultural and imperial historians more broadly, will find much to engage in this excellent and important book." - Twentieth Century British History
