Summary

"Espiritu examines the historical and contemporary experiences of Asian American women and men--with each other and with the dominant white society--from a gendered perspective. . . . The historical oppression of Asian Americans is explored along material and cultural lines, e.g., the formal and informal labor markets, including prostitution; family and small businesses; JapaneseAmerican internment; marriage and family; refugee resettlement; racist stereotyping.Theoretically, Espiritu advances the concept of 'racialized patriarchy.'She concludes with a call to create an 'imagined community' of cross-gender, cross-cultural, and cross-class coalitions bound together by the common struggle against all pervasive forms of structured domination."(Choice)
