Strangers at the Gates Again: Asian American Immigration after 1965

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 6 Up-The past 30 years of Asian immigration to America are covered in this adaptation of Takaki's adult title, Strangers from a Different Shore (Viking, 1990). In clear and precise language, the author describes the experiences of immigrants from many Asian countries, as well as how they differed from those of people who were ``first wave'' immigrants. There is sometimes a sameness to the struggles depicted (for example, professional men and women from Korea and from the Philippines left their native lands because they could not find jobs in their fields; however, in the U.S. many worked at jobs far below their levels of capability and education). This repetition (although accurate), some broadly generalized statements in the introduction, the less than compelling black-and-white photographs, and the sense that the book was once part of a more complete historical record keep it from being an absorbing account. On the other hand, it will be in demand for reports, and will serve well for that purpose.-Carla Kozak, San Francisco Public Library
