Helen Zia highlights the decades of discrimination Asian Americans have undergone, with personal anecdotes at the beginning of each chapter. Highly informative, although I would have liked Zia to include more Asian American voices in place of nitty-gritty historical details.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0374527369, Paperback)

This groundbreaking book traces the transformation of Asian Americans from a few small, disconnected, and largely invisible ethnic groups into a self-identified racial group that is influencing every aspect of American society. It explores the events that shocked Asian Americans into motion and shaped a new consciousness. Helen Zia, the daughter of Chinese immigrants, writes as a personal witness to the dramatic changes involving Asian Americans.
