Summary
"This critical anthology draws on current theoretical movements to examine the breadth of Asian American literature from the earliest to the most recent writers. Covering fiction, essays, poetry, short stories, ethnography, and autobiography, Form and Transformation in Asian American Literature advances the development of a theoretically informed, historically and culturally specific methodology for studying this increasingly complex field." "The essays in this anthology probe into hotly debated issues as well as understudied topics, including the relations between Asian American and other minority American writings."--BOOK JACKET
