Written for college-level courses, but accessible to a wider audience, this book provides a foundation for understanding the history, culture, and social relationships that define the issues facing Asian Americans. It examines the inter-relationships between race, class, and gender and considers how they impact the lives of Asian Americans and shape their experiences. Theoretical perspectives are contrasted, and the diversity within the Asian-American community is emphasized. Statistical data on immigration, demographics, socioeconomics, and education is supplied.
