Editorial Reviews

Review

“The book conveys the sense that there is something dynamic, complex and compelling at work here when considering the transnational dimension of Asian American political lives. The reader is left with a sense as well that in looking at these questions for Asian Americans one is getting at least a glimpse at issues that will apply to a growing number of immigrant Americans from reaches other than Asia.”—Paul Watanabe, Director of the Institute for Asian American Studies, University of Massachusetts, Boston

Book Description

As America’s most ethnically diverse foreign-born population, Asian Americans can puzzle political observers. This volume’s multidisciplinary team of contributors employ a variety of methodologies—including quantitative, ethnographic, and historical—to illustrate how transnational ties between the U.S. and Asia have shaped, and are increasingly defining, Asian American politics in our multicultural society.

 

Original essays by U.S.- and Asian-based scholars discuss Cambodian, Chinese, Filipino, Indian, Japanese, Korean, and Vietnamese communities from Boston to Honolulu. The volume also shows how the grassroots activism of America’s “newest minority” both reflects and is instrumental in broader processes of political change throughout the Pacific. Addressing the call for more global approaches to racial and ethnic politics, contributors describe how Asian immigrants strategically navigate the hurdles to domestic incorporation and equality by turning their political sights and energies toward Asia. These essays convincingly demonstrate that Asian American political participation in the U.S. does not consist simply of domestic actions with domestic ends.
