"Laura Uba writes with a grace and passion that engages the reader in a way that challenges our existing paradigms of understanding knowledge as it pertains to Asian Americans. She convincingly describes how the Enlightenment view of science was born in a context of viewing Euro-Americans as 'normal' and ethnic minority groups as 'other,' and how this attitudinal perspective has shaped scientific method and theory of 'other.'
