"This book successfully conveys an important facet of the contemporary dynamic of ethnicity."—Seungsook Moon, American Journal of Sociology.
"Legacies of Struggle is a well-researched, thoughtful study of modern American ethnic dynamics, covering the Korean American immigrant experience, the development of Koreatown, and the examination [of] the racial conflicts and social challenges."—Korean Quarterly
"Chung offers readers an analysis of the role of community-based organizations in the political landscape of the Korean community in the Los Angeles area... This work will be most useful for those studying contemporary ethnic politics, the roles of contemporary ethnic organizations, and Asian American adaptation in the US."—CHOICE
"Unique and illuminating, this is the first book to examine the political and social service organizations in a multiethnic enclave. It will become a model for future studies of multiethnic enclaves in the post-1965 era, and makes a significant contribution not only to Asian American studies, but also to studies of immigration, ethnic and race relations, and social service organizations." —Pyong Gap Min, Queens College CUNY, author of Caught in the Middle: Korean Merchants in America's Multiethnic Cities
"Perceptively attentive to institutional context, collective identities, and individual experiences, Angie Chung shows how "bridging" ethnic organizations carve out a distinctive political space. In illustrating the form and role of two such organizations, she provides an innovative rethinking of how ethnic political solidarity is rearticulated and sustained in the face of the Korean American community's increasing generational differences, class disparities, and residential dispersal."—Michael Omi, University of California, Berkeley
