Summary

The end of World War II and the enactment of the Immigration and Naturalization Act of 1965 marked the beginning of a new Asian immigration. The new Asian immigrants--among them higher proportions of women, middle-class professionals, managers, and entrepreneurs--have been profoundly affected and influenced by the restructuring of the global economy, particularly in Pacific Rim industries. Written from the perspective of a veriety of disciplines, including sociology, economics, anthropology, urban planning, and history, this volume focuses on Los Angeles as a critical ''world city'' in the developing global economy and also as the center of new Asian immigration.

This comprehensive account of Asian immigration over the last five decades includes discussions of the settlement patterns of various groups of Asians in relation to the social, economic, and political developments in Asia and the United States. At a local level, the garment and health care industries in Los Angeles are examined to explore the role of new Asian immigrant in the local ecnomy as well as in city and suburban politics. Essays also consider the emergent concept of panethnicity, Asian relations iwth other nonwhite groups, the growing competition among different groups for public funding, and how Asian immigrants' individual and collective struggles have been reshaping the United States.
