A survey of U.S. history from its beginnings to the present, American History Unbound reveals our past through the lens of Asian American and Pacific Islander history. In so doing, it is a work of both history and anti-history, a narrative that fundamentally transforms and deepens our understanding of the United States. This text is accessible and filled with engaging stories and themes that draw attention to key theoretical and historical interpretations. Gary Y. Okihiro positions Asians and Pacific Islanders within a larger history of people of color in the United States and places the United States in the context of world history and oceanic worlds.

From the Inside Flap:

“Brimming with vivid stories and challenging ideas, American History Unbound bestows the full benefit of Okihiro’s decades of research and thought. As deep in conception as it is sweeping in scope, this volume will reorient readers’ historical understanding and jar loose some of the most cherished misconceptions about American democracy.”—Matthew Frye Jacobson, author of Barbarian Virtues: The United States Encounters Foreign Peoples at Home and Abroad, 1876–1917

“Engaging deeply in both history and theory, this new textbook offers a counter-history that stresses the connections among people of color in the United States and the world to reveal how Asians and Pacific Islanders transformed America."
—Erika Lee, Rudolph J. Vecoli Chair in Immigration History and Director of the Immigration History Research Center at the University of Minnesota and author of The Making of Asian America: A History

“This is history on a grand scale, moving deftly from the ancient worlds to the current ‘war on terror’ and capturing national and global trends as well as local contexts and individual stories along the way. Readers will never look at American history—and the stakes of doing history (or anti-history)—the same old way again.”—Moon-Ho Jung, editor of The Rising Tide of Color: Race, State Violence, and Radical Movements across the Pacific

About the Author:
