Summary
  • This book is a survey of literature by North American writers of Asian descent, in terms of both national origins (Chinese, Filipino, Japanese, Korean, South Asian, Vietnamese) and shared concerns. It introduces readers to the distinctive literary history of each group of writers and discusses issues that connect or divide these different groups. Part One provides a literary history of each constituent national group and underlines salient historical events that have affected its writing. Part Two, addressing common racial issues such as nationalism, representation, and crises of identity, explores the forces that bind, divide, and foster exchange among writers and critics of diverse origins
  • The volume is an original and valuable guide and reference work for students, teachers, and scholars in Asian American studies, ethnic studies, and American studies
