Editorial Reviews

Derald Wing Sue
"This is the most outstanding resource on Asian American psychology that exists in the professional market today. No only does it provide state-of-the-art knowledge on this important racial/ethnic group, but it has implications for the entire field of psychology and challenges the universality of its concepts. I applaud the editors and contributors for the excellence of this Second Edition. It is ‘must’ reading for not only classes in multicultural psychology, but should be a required resource for the social sciences."
Joseph E. Trimble
"If anyone is curious about the depth and scope of the sociocultural and psychological experiences of Asian Americans then this Handbook should be kept close by for use as a reference and a resource.... Set against a well-developed organizational framework that blends the major themes of inquiry for this ethnic population the reader is introduced to profound insights, engaging observations and research results, and cutting edge commentary on the future of ethnic psychological research and scholarship."
Mahzarin R. Banaji
"A psychology of human nature and nurture cannot be complete without understanding 3/5's of the world's people. This Handbook is the first to accomplish an understanding of them by investigating the diaspora in North America. In so doing, it sets a new landmark."
Hazel Rose Markus
"This insightful and comprehensive volume is a gift to the field and a must-read. It isn't just for the growing number of us who need to understand the psychology of Asian Americans, but for any scholar theorizing about the dynamics of identity, race, cultural competence, immigration, acculturation, or globalization."
Lowell Brubaker
"The editorial team of Leong et al. have put together a handbook that is above all else a practical work that will not gather dust on the shelf. This is a book that will be used."
