Sucheng Chan incisively examines the Asian American experience, weaving together the stories of Americans of Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Filipino, and Asian Indian ancestry from the mid-nineteenth century to the present. Chan includes an account of the influx of a million refugees and immigrants from Vietnam, Laos, and Kampuchea [sic] since 1975.
Economic survival, community structure, resistance to oppression, family formation, internment and military service during World War II, changing socio-economic status, educational achievements, political activities, and cultural expressions are all deftly analyzed.
«Employing a highly useful and imaginative comparative approach to the complex and heterogeneous history of Asians in the United States, Chan has produced a major interpretation of Asian American history that will serve as a model for historians of American ethnicity.» — Mario T. Garcia
