The Second Generation: Ethnic Identity Among Asian Americans: Ethnic Identity Among Asian Americans (Critical Perspectives on Asian Pacific Americans) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In a series of essays based on original ethnographic research, Pyong Gap Min and his contributors examine the unique identity issues for second generation ethnic Asians, from Chinese, Japanese, Filipino, Korean, Indian, and Vietnamese descent. They describe how societal expectations and structural barriers have a powerful influence on the formation of ethnic identities in a strongly racialized American society. Key factors discussed are the importance of culture and language retention, ethnic attachment, transnational ties, pan-Asian coalitions and friendships, social and geographic mobility, racial domination and racial awareness, life cycle changes, immigrant women's sexuality and gender traditionalism, deviant behavior, and educational and occupational achievement. This book will be a valuable resource in the study of Asian American culture, race, ethnicity and American society.

Book News Annotation:

Eight contributions from Min (sociology, Queens College, NY) and other Asian-American academics discuss identity issues for second generation ethnic Asians from Chinese, Japanese, Filipino, Korean, Indian, and Vietnamese descent. These empirical studies examine such topics as Filipino American youth gangs in Los Angeles, ethnic and racial identities of Asian Americans in college, and ethnic attachment among third- and fourth- generation Chinese and Japanese Americans. Seven of the essays were previously published in various journals.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
