Studies on Chinatown emphasize informal ethnic networks, self-governance, insularity, and an institutionally complete neighborhood (Wong 1982; Zhou 1992). Reflecting the various types of racialization of Asian communities, Chinatowns have been depicted as ghettos (Kinkead 1991; Light 1974)/ impoverished working-poor neighborhoods (Kwong 1987, 1996; Loo 1991), and, more recently, socioeconomic powerhouses (Zhou 1992). The revitalization of historic Chinatowns and the formation of new "satellite" Chinatowns in the aftermath of the 1965 Immigration and Nationality Act have led some scholars to proclaim enclaves a superior strategy for immigrant economic and social integration (Portes and Zhou 1992; Zhou 1992).
