With a population of over twenty million, Asian Americans are the fastest growing racial minority group in the United States. Once a collective of Chinese, Japanese, and Filipino American activists, Asian America now encompasses a much wider array of experiences—from Southeast Asian post-war refugees to Indian immigrant tech workers to Asian American multiracial college students to undocuqueer Asian American activists.
The Asian American Sociology Series aims to expand scholarly and public understanding of Asian America. Drawing on a range of methodological traditions, books in the series will address timely topics and will be penned in accessible prose. A major goal of the series is to elevate social science scholarship on understudied communities and topics within Asian American sociology (e.g., Southeast Asian Americans, refugee studies, undocumented Asian Americans, queer and transgender Asian Americans, Asian-descent Muslim Americans).
