In the perception of many Americans all Asians are somehow lumped together as one race, devoid of distinctive ethnic and cultural differences. One interviewee says it doesn't matter if you are Chinese, Korean or Japanese, you're still seen as a "chink" by many in the United States. The reality is that the various Asian cultures are extremely diverse.
The interviews in this book are divided into three parts: "Profiles" (culture, economic life styles, family and relationships); "Aspects of Americanization" (immigration, resettlement and religion); and "Reflections on Interracial Marriage."
