Book Description :

In an extraordinary blend of narrative history, personal recollection, & oral testimony, the author presents a sweeping history of Asian Americans. He writes of the Chinese who laid tracks for the transcontinental railroad, of plantation laborers in the canefields of Hawaii, of "picture brides" marrying strangers in the hope of becoming part of the American dream. He tells stories of Japanese Americans behind the barbed wire of U.S. internment camps during World War II, Hmong refugees tragically unable to adjust to Wisconsin's alien climate & culture, & Asian American students stigmatized by the stereotype of the "model minority." This is a powerful & moving work that will resonate for all Americans, who together make up a nation of immigrants from other shores.

Book Description :

By the year 2000 more than 350 Internet agencies were plying the email-order marriage trade, and the business of matching up mostly Western men with women from Asia, Eastern Europe, and Latin America had become an example of globalization writ large. This provocative work opens a window onto the complex motivations and experiences of the people behind the stereotypes and misconceptions that have exploded along with the practice of transnational courtship and marriage. Combining extensive Internet ethnography and face-to-face fieldwork, Romance on a Global Stage looks at the intimate realities of Filipinas, Chinese women, and U.S. men corresponding in hopes of finding a suitable marriage partner. Through the experiences of those engaged in pen pal relationships—their stories of love, romance, migration, and long-distance dating—this book conveys the richness and dignity of women's and men's choices without reducing these correspondents to calculating opportunists or naive romantics. Attentive to the structural, cultural, and personal factors that prompt women and men to seek marriage partners abroad, Romance on a Global Stage questions the dichotomies so frequently drawn between structure and agency, and between global and local levels of analysis.

For courses in Majority-Minority Relations, Racial and Ethnic Relations, Cultural Diversity, and Multiculturalism in departments of Sociology, Ethnic Studies, Political Science, and Education. A theoretically informed and empirical exploration of the diversity, depth, and significance of racial and ethnic relations in the U.S., this text is organized by racial-ethnic groups rather than by issues. Drawing heavily on a broad range of research sources that dig deep into the "what," "why," and "how" of racial and ethnic oppression and conflict it examines 15 major racial and ethnic groups with regard to their incorporation, economic circumstances, political development, and experience with exploitation with special reference to the assimilation and power conflict (theoretical) perspectives.

Book Description :

Exploring the multifaceted Chinese experience in New York City, Xinyang Wang persuasively illustrates that economic forces more than racism influenced immigrantsAI life decisions. Wang argues that rather than being passive victims, Chinese were economic actors making rational choices for survival. Wang shows why, in the first half of the century, Chinese continued to live in white neighborhoods despite severe discrimination, why they retained their group loyalties even at the expense of fighting discrimination, and why they chose not to join the established labor movement. The author traces the rise of an enclave economy in the 1950s, which led more Chinese to take up residence in Chinatown, loosen the bonds of regional and kinship networks, and unionize. Erasing long-standing stereotypes, this innovative study brings the Chinese American experience into mainstream immigrant history.

Book Description :

Upon its first publication, A Different Mirror was hailed by critics and academics everywhere as a dramatic new retelling of our nation's past. Beginning with the colonization of the New World, it recounted the history of America in the voice of the non-Anglo peoples of the United States--Native Americans, African Americans, Jews, Irish Americans, Asian Americans, Latinos, and others--groups who helped create this country's rich mosaic culture. Now, Ronald Takaki has revised his landmark work and made it even more relevant and important. Among the new additions to the book are: --The role of black soldiers in preserving the Union --The history of Chinese Americans from 1900-1941 --An investigation into the hot-button issue of "illegal" immigrants from Mexico --A look at the sudden visibility of Muslim refugees from Afghanistan. This new edition of A Different Mirror is a remarkable achievement that grapples with the raw truth of American history and examines the ultimate question of what it means to be an American.

Book Description :

"This collection of twelve essays focuses on a variety of late-nineteenth- and early-twentieth-century texts to illustrate the unprecedented flexibility of the realist mode in American fiction and poetry. As the volume demonstrates, the realist era was hospitable to a multitude of writers - including Mark Twain, W. D. Howells, and Bret Harte, as well as such newly canonized figures as Marietta Holly, Abraham Cahan, Frances Ellen Harper, Sui Sin Far, and Zitkala-Sa - who voiced the most urgent concerns of race and ethnicity, gender, class, and region. In all, these essays not only participate in the ongoing recanonization of American literature but reconstruct the literary history of the period by raising theoretical questions, addressing social and ideological issues, and revaluing literary tradition."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
