It's an important book for readers, students, and scholars. -- Shawn Wong, professor of English and director of the University Honors Program at the University of Washington Comprehensive, thoroughly researched, and easy to read, this is an eminently useful guide for anyone interested in the fast-growing field of Asian American literature.
