"Brings together some of the most important scholarship in Asian American Studies. Contemporary Asian America is a superbly organized anthology, presenting topics ranging from immigration, family, and community to activism, identity, sexuality, race relations and transnationalism. The new research and updated materials on previously understudied Asian ethnic groups are most valuable. Anyone interested in the experiences of Asians in the United States will find much here that is illuminating. The breadth and depth of this volume makes it an excellent reader for undergraduate and graduate level courses in Asian American Studies."--Xiaojian Zhao, University of California, Santa Barbara
"A thoughtfully assembled collection of readings that carefully brings together central themes in Asian American Studies. A great resource for those looking for a lively introduction to the field."--Nazli Kibria, Boston University
