Abstract

This article chronicles the circumstances that were pivotal to the establishment of a Chinese community in Mexicali, Mexico. The community is reconstructed as a place in 1925, when its population peaked. After assessing the dynamics of recent change and continuity the article concludes that Chinatown in Mexicali arose because of a particular set of intersecting local and external factors, including political, social, and economic considerations, that operated largely between the first and third decades of the twentieth century.
