Editorial Reviews

Review

"To read these essays is to be challenged again and again by some of the brightest minds and most sophisticated political sensibilities at work today. This volume is essential reading."
(Paul Spickard author of Almost All Aliens 2009-01-23)

"A very valuable resource for students and scholars of Asian American and ethnic studies. Highly recommended."
(Choice 2099-01-01)

"Pedagogically focused and structured, Asian American Studies Now underscores the present-day relevance of the field, given the contemporary realities of neoliberal globalization and the post-9/11 security state. Asian American Studies Now is a return to the field's community-driven roots."
(MELUS 2011-09-01)

Format: Paperback
I recently bought this book that was required for an Asian American History class. Upon reading many of the essays in here, my biggest complaint was that the authors of these essays really need to pay attention to their syntax. The problem with poor syntax is that readers have to read over certain passages many times, and at a certain point, it can be hindering on the learning experience. Another thing that really got on my nerves was how the information was presented in every essay. It's good to have background information on the subject, but at one point, it would be nice to just get to the point.However, there are some essays that are very insightful, and their information does not "beat around the bush". Personally, I would not recommend this book if you are just looking to gain more information on Asian American History. If this book is a requirement for a class, I wish you luck.

I can't say if this is beneficial or not. This is just another required book for one of my classes.
