Offering a broad overview of the Asian American experience, Asian Americans provides an accessible resource for all students interested in the expanding and important Asian American population. While historical information is provided for each group, the main focus is on the variables and issues that impact Asian American life today. The scholars who author the chapters look at topics such as labor force participation and economic status, educational achievements, intermarriage, intergroup relations, and settlement patterns. Photo essays help to enhance the presentations.

Review:

"The major strength is that it adequately covers both the history and contemporary trends of Asian American groups. Another commendable point of this book is thestrength of its contributors. This book is accessible to a wide range of audiences. Min and his contributors provide an excellent introduction to contemporary Asian American studies. Instructors looking for texts on sociological studies of Asian Americans would do well to consider Asian Americans."--Etsuko Maruoka (10/19/2006)"

"Compared to many existing texts on this subject, which tend to take a rather historical approach, this book focuses on more contemporary Asian experiences. Thus, Min has provided a new tool for those of use who have looked for adequate material to teach current Asian American trends in advanced undergraduate courses in the sociology of race as well as in ethnic studies. Encompassing a variety of perspectives from prominent scholars makes this book a valuable device to examine the less visible aspects of Asian Americans' lives. Students and educators alike would certainly benefit from diligent study of this text."--Etsuko Maruoka (11/30/2006)
