Editorial Reviews


"Asian American literature took shape in the late-19th century. It has since thrived in every major genre―novels, short fiction, poetry, autobiography, anthology, and drama. This three-volume publication is currently one of only two encyclopedias on Asian American literature in English. It features more than 270 entries on a wide range of topics, including writers, works, themes, genres, important historical events, special topics, concepts, and terms related to Asian American literature from the late 1890s to 2007. . . . Recommended. Lower-level undergraduates through faculty/researchers; general readers." - Choice

"There is overlap with such earlier works as Huang's own Columbia Guide to Asian-American Literature Since 1945 (Columbia Univ., 2006) and Asian-American Short Story Writers: An A-to-Z Guide (Greenwood, 2003), but this is an impressive improvement, covering far more writers, subjects, and works in much greater depth. . . . [E]ssential for any library serving students in this still-emerging field." - Library Journal

"This three-volume encyclopedia aimed at librarians, reviewers, high school and college students, and general readers contains 272 entries on topics in Asian American literature, including writers, special topics, events, and terms. Huang (Biscayne College, and English, St. Thomas U.) assembles entries that cover literature by North American writers of Asian descent from the late 1890s to 2007, within a variety of contexts." - Reference & Research Book News

"[T]his is an excellent choice for academic libraries that teach ethnic literature and for large public libraries in areas with Asian populations." - Booklist
