The Transnational Politics of Asian Americans by Christian Collet

Discusses Asian Americans as a force for political change on both sides of the Pacific


The book conveys the sense that there is something dynamic, complex and compelling at work here when considering the transnational dimension of Asian American political lives. The reader is left with a sense as well that in looking at these questions for Asian Americans one is getting at least a glimpse at issues that will apply to a growing number of immigrant Americans from reaches other than Asia. -Paul Watanabe, Director of the Institute for Asian American Studies, University of Massachusetts, Boston

For me, to read is to learn, to reflect, to escape, to think, to contemplate and my time for space and calm.
