"Carrying the thread of women's agency throughout, this anthology encompasses struggles and triumphs around social, cultural, and civic citizenship, expanding outward from the US context to incorporate analyses of how gender is always already intersectional and intertwined with globalization, transnationalism, and empire-building in the Asian American and Pacific Islander context. . . . A welcome addition."--Charlene Tung, Sonoma State University
"A field-defining work, charting the past, present, and future of Asian American women's history."--Miliann Kang, author of The Managed Hand: Race, Gender, and the Body in Beauty Service Work
"This immersive anthology begins to address gaps and transform understanding in history and literature by, for and about Asian American and Pacific Islander women."--Ms. Magazine
