About

Overview

Organized topically by group, with an in-depth overview essay on each group, the encyclopedia examines the myriad ethnicities and histories that make up the Asian American population in the United States. Asian American History and Culture covers the political, social, and cultural history of immigrants from East Asia, Southeast Asia, South Asia, the Pacific Islands, and their descendents, as well as the social and cultural issues faced by Asian American communities, families, and individuals in contemporary society. In addition to entries on various groups and cultures, researchers will also find articles on general topics such as parenting and child rearing, assimilation and acculturation, business, education, and literature. More than 100 images are included.
