Editorial Reviews

Review

"The history of Asian Americans is both a tale of hope and opportunity, as well as menial labor, prejudice, and a hostile legal system. . . . The author analyzes how U.S. immigration policies and laws have shaped Asian American communities. . . . Limited to the six largest groups—Chinese, Filipino, Japanese, Asian Indian, Korean, and Vietnamese—the study includes the effects of immigration laws on Asian American attitudes towards education, political participation, and self-identity. . . . This is a commendable and gripping 'read' promoting a better understanding of the 150 years of Asian American experiences."—Choice.


"A valuable chronicle of the many barriers that Asian immigrants have faced. . . . Hing buttresses his thorough analysis by excerpting every significant law and court ruling on Asian immigration."—Reason
