Book News Annotation:

Sociologists, and one educational psychologist, update their 1995 textbook for social-science oriented courses in Asian American studies to incorporate information from the 2000 US Census, new publications, emerging issues and the adaptation of the new second generation. Interspersed with the dozen text essays are eight two- page photographic essays.

Synopsis:

Compared to many existing texts on this subject, which tend to take a rather historical approach, this book focuses on more contemporary Asian experiences. Thus, Min has provided a new tool for those of use who have looked for adequate material to teach current Asian American trends in advanced undergraduate courses in the sociology of race as well as in ethnic studies. Encompassing a variety of perspectives from prominent scholars makes this book a valuable device to examine the less visible aspects of Asian Americans' lives. Students and educators alike would certainly benefit from diligent study of this text. --TEACHING SOCIOLOGY, reviewed October 2006 by Etsuko Maruoka, SUNY-Stony BrookOffering a broad overview of the Asian American experience, Asian Americans provides an accessible resource for all students interested in the expanding and important Asian American population.
