Inhaltsangabe: As one of only two Asians at the U.S. Military Academy in the 1960s, Kai Ting must endure prejudice and preconceptions of his fellow cadets as the specter of Vietnam hangs over West Point. By the author of China Boy. 50,000 first printing. $50,000 ad/promo. BOMC Alt. Tour.
Kai Ting knows what it means to become an American and lose all that is Chinese. It happened to his father, a former officer in Chiang Kai-shek's army, who never came to terms with his new life in the United States. Now, as a West Point cadet in the 1960s, Kai has a golden chance both to retain his heritage and to become undeniably, gloriously American.
But the Point has dangerous preconceptions about Asians, especially as the war in Vietnam escalates. Kai walks on a razor's edge...and falls into the dark pit of a cheating scandal. Suddenly, he must learn a new tribal behavior, a new etiquette. And his very survival depends on learning it fast....
