Grade 9-12-- Each volume begins with a chapter defining discrimination, followed by a description of the ethnic group's immigration to and history in the United States. The writing is dry and sometimes grammatically incorrect. Hirabayashi overdoes the use of acronyms: 3 different ones appear 12 times in a half page of text. Ng occasionally bandies about concepts such as extraterritoriality without defining them. Throughout he repeats terms introduced in the first chapter, but they are not indexed for readers who wish to refresh their memories. The material here has been covered more ably and far more interestingly in such books as Daley's The Chinese Americans (1988), Kitano's The Japanese Americans (1987, both Chelsea), and Meltzer's The Chinese Americans (Crowell, 1980). Brief biographies of important individuals, an extensive annotated bibliography of primarily adult print and audiovisual materials, and a listing of minority organizations are appended. Sharp full-color and black-and-white photos and reproductions are sprinkled sparingly throughout the texts, often as filler. The basic facts are here--but nothing more. --Diane S.
