Scott Seligman in 2012.

When we first met Scott Seligman in the fall of 2012, this Forest Hills neighbor had just published his third book Three Tough Chinamen, a true story of immigrant brothers in the 19th century. The following year, he produced The First Chinese American: The Remarkable Life of Wong Chin Foo, about the immigrant to coined the term “Chinese American.”

Seligman again draws on his passion for the history and culture of the Chinese immigrant in America for his latest book: Tong Wars: The Untold Story of Vice, Money and Murder in New York’s Chinatown. Here, Seligman chronicles the Chinatown gang wars in turn-of-the-century New York.
