Overview

In a series of essays based on orginal ethnographic research, Pyong Gap Min and his contributors provide comprehensive coverage of identity issues for second generation ethnic Asians. Among the immigrant groups examined are Americans of Chinese, Japanese, Filipino, Korean, Indian, and Vietnamese descent. From a structural perspective, and challenging the assimilationist model in a strongly racialized American society, the authors investigate many of the key issues facing contemporary ethnic Asians: culture and language retention, ethnic attachment, transnational ties, pan-Asian coalitions and friendships, social and geographic mobility, racial domination and racial awareness, life cycle changes, immigrant women's sexuality and gender traditionalism, deviant behavior, and educational and occupational achievement. This book will be a valuable resource in courses on Asian American society, ethnicity and culture, ethnographic studies, and sociology of race and ethnic minorities.

Author Biography: Pyong Gap Min teaches in the Department of Sociology, Queens College, New York.
