Summary

People of Asian origin are the fastest growing ethnic group in the U.S. As of 2000, this group constitutes 4 percent of the total U.S. population, roughly 12 million. As a result, Asian American youth are quickly growing into their own subculture and carving out their own identity in American culture.

This first-rate collection is one of the first to address the important topics concerning Asian American youth as a distinctive group apart from other groups such as Latinos and African Americans. The essays examine such timely topics as immigration, assimilation, intermarriage, socialization, sexuality, and ethnic identification.

This groundbreaking work fills a significant absence in the existing literature on youth culture while providing a broad look at Asian American youth culture across different Asian ethnic groups.
