9780814797136: Contemporary Asian America (second edition): A Multidisciplinary Reader

When Contemporary Asian America was first published, it exposed its readers to developments within the discipline, from its inception as part of the ethnic consciousness movement of the 1960s to the more contemporary theoretical and practical issues facing Asian America at the century's end. This new edition features a number of fresh entries and updated material. It covers such topics as Asian American activism, immigration, community formation, family relations, gender roles, sexuality, identity, struggle for social justice, interethnic conflict/coalition, and political participation. As in the first edition, Contemporary Asian America provides an expansive introduction to the central readings in Asian American Studies, presenting a grounded theoretical orientation to the discipline and framing key historical, cultural, economic, and social themes with a social science focus. This critical text offers a broad overview of Asian American studies and the current state of Asian America.

Review:

“An outstanding collection of essays, representing some of the most insightful work being done in Asian American Studies today. The wide range of topics covered and the quality of the selections, make this an indispensable volume, both in terms of its substantive content and its theoretical sophistication.”
-Lane Ryo Hirabayashi,University of Colorado, Boulder



“An impressive and comprehensive collection of theoretically grounded and historically rich accounts of the Asian American collective and specific experiences. Ideal for undergraduate and graduate courses in Asian American Studies.”

-Yen Le Espiritu,author of Asian American Women and Men: Labor, Laws, and Love



“Presents a valuable collection of readings that address the complexities of contemporary Asian American communities. Bringing together a wide range of scholars who work in the areas of history, sociology, gender and sexuality studies, critical race theory, transnationalism, and cultural studies, Contemporary Asian America will serve as the standard reader in courses dealing with the issues confronting contemporary Asian America for years to come.”

-K. Scott Wong,co-editor of Claiming America

“A highly useful collection of readings that trace the topography of contemporary Asian American studies and introduce the major themes and concerns in the field: social movement, immigration policy, racism and racialization, labor, gender and sexuality, and cultural expression. In this ambitious reader, Zhou and Gatewood bring together the histories and contemporary issues facing Asian Americans of different ethnic heritages, generations, and social class backgrounds.”
-Elaine H. Kim,University of California, Berkeley



Contemporary Asian America addresses pressing issues and theoretical concerns of Asian Americans in the twenty-first century. Its wide range of coverage and high quality in the depth of its analysis make this volume valuable.”

-Esther Ngan-ling Chow,American University
