About the Book

As the United States wrestles with the rising tide of hate crimes, Asian Americans have been disproportionately victimized. From the infamous Chinese Exclusion Act of 1882 to contemporary attempts to restrict Asian land ownership, Asian Americans continue to be regarded as different, aliens in their own country. Why are they still regarded as outsiders, despite their scientific and cultural contributions to our society? The origin and current perceptions of myths and stereotypes about Asian Americans are exposed in this book, with a look at prospects for their becoming recognized and accepted by the dominant white society.
