Editorial Reviews

Review

Asian American Political Participation provides a revealing and nuanced analysis of the political attitudes and voting preferences of the rapidly growing, highly diverse, and increasingly influential population of sixteen million Asian Americans. Based on the first-ever large-scale, multilingual national survey, this work is a must read for all who study or participate in American electoral politics, the politics of race and ethnicity, and the political acculturation of immigrants. The team of Janelle Wong, S. Karthick Ramakrishnan, Taeku Lee, and Jane Junn has made an exceptional contribution to public knowledge and research about the growing impact and visibility of Asian American voters, donors, activists, and politicians. --DON T. NAKANISHI, professor and director emeritus, University of California, Los Angeles

In this theoretically nuanced and empirically sophisticated study, these brilliant young political scientists not only decipher the paradoxes of Asian American political engagement, they show why it requires us to redefine our understanding of political participation in America and how to do so. Destined to be a classic. --JOHN MOLLENKOPF, Distinguished Professor of Political Science and Sociology and director, Center for Urban Research, CUNY Graduate Center

Path-breaking in its evidence and in the sophistication of interpretation, Asian American Political Participation is an indispensable study for anyone interested in Asian Americans in American politics. The four authors, all leading specialists, offer rich insights into why Asian Americans are voting as they are. With Asian Americans becoming an increasingly important constituency, this book is useful and most timely. --GORDON H. CHANG, professor of history, Stanford University

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is very much an academic work, heavily referenced and filled with very useful database that will be helpful to anyone who is researching Asia-American political attitudes and behavior. It is essential reading for anyone who is serious about taking into account the perspectives of this community and who want to do more than pay lip service to their concerns. Dr. Wong's work also Implies future directions for research into a community that all too often has been taken for granted -- a community that is gaining in strength and influence in America.
