From East to West: The History of Mah Jongg   

What do we, Confucius, the sparrow, Abercrombie & Fitch, and many of our mothers have in common? Discover Mah Jongg's history in China and America and learn why so many Chinese people and Jewish-American Women have a love affair with this historic game. We will also look at the game's popularity (and its variations) in the United Kingdom, Japan, and on American military bases worldwide.
