Original and expansive, Asian American Histories of the United States is a nearly 200 year history of Asian migration, labor, and community formation in the US. This ambitious book includes eleven Asian-American groups and is fundamental to understanding the American experience and its existential crises of the early 21st century. Catherine Ceniza Choy presents an urgent social history of the fastest-growing group of Americans by featuring their lived experiences, from agriculture to health care and from beauty to high tech. Choy traces how anti-Asian harassment and violence, immigration restriction, cultural stereotyping, and bamboo ceilings are prominent themes in Asian American history. Highlighting diverse voices and lives, Choy argues that, in response to their social, economic, and political struggles, Asian immigrants and U.S.-born Asian Americans have affirmed and expanded American core values of liberty and justice for all.
