Editorial Reviews


“An impressive and comprehensive collection of theoretically grounded and historically rich accounts of the Asian American collective and specific experiences. Ideal for undegraduate and graduate courses in Asian American Studies.”

-Yen Le Espiritu,author of Asian American Women and Men: Labor, Laws, and Love

“A highly useful collection of readings that trace the topography of contemporary Asian American studies and introduce the major themes and concerns in the field: social movement, immigration policy, racism and racialization, labor gender and sexuality, and cultural expression. In this ambitious reader, Zhou and Gatewood bring together the histories and contemporary issues facing Asian Americans of different ethnic heritages, generations, and social class backgrounds.”

-Elaine H. Kim,Professor of Asian American Studies, University of California, Berkeley

“An outstanding collection of essays, representing some of the most insightful work being done in Asian American studies today. The wide range of topics covered and the quality of the selections make this an indispensable volume, both in terms of its substantive content and its theoretical sophistication.”

-Lane Ryo Hirabayashi,Ph.D. Professor, Department of Ethnic Studies University of Colorado, Boulder

“Presents a valuable collection of readings that address the complexities of contemporary Asian American communities. Bringing together a wide range of scholars who work in the areas of history, sociology, gender and sexuality studies, critical race theory, transnationalism, and cultural studies, Contemporary Asian America will serve as the standard reader in courses dealing with the issues confronting contemporary Asian America for years to come.”

-K. Scott Wong,co-editor of Claiming America: Constructing Chinese American Identities during the Exclusion Era
