An associate professor at the Howard University School of Law, explores Asian American identity in contemporary America. Wu addresses affirmative action, immigration, globalization, and the damaging yet deeply entrenched notions of the "perpetual foreigner" and the superficially positive view of the "model minority" through personal anecdotes, court cases, and trends in journalism and academia. This noteworthy book about the changing landscape of race relations in the United States is an important book for anyone parenting a child of Asian descent.
