"Rhacel Parrenas and Lok Siu have created an anthology that bridges diaspora, Asian and Asian American Studies. This is a difficult task, given the range of topics and tensions possible, yet this anthology has engaged with the key debates in the field and enhanced the conversation in extremely fruitful ways. Asian Diasporas is required reading for many disciplines and fields interested in theorizing subjectivities formed out of migration and dispersions." (Inderpal Grewal, University of California)
"Illustrating seemingly porous global borders, Asian Diasporas is a timely collection of rich, well-researched chapters on the lives and experiences of people originating from Asia..." (Journal of International Migration and Integration)
"Asian Diasporas skillfully integrates diverse perspectives from Asian Studies and Asian American Studies into a coherent theme to illuminate sensible understandings of how people of diverse Asian origins experience, imagine, and interpret diasporas across geographical and social spaces in the globalized world." (Min Zhou, University of California)
"The essays reflect a high level of professional skill... the writing is clear and unpretentious, and the scholarship is solid.... These are, simply, very bright and professional scholars doing excellent scholarly work." (Paul Spickard Journal of American Ethnic History)
