Product Description

This comprehensive book offers a unique and much needed examination of Asian immigration to the United States, focusing on three central questions: What causes Asian immigration to the United States? How do post-1965 Asian immigrants impact American society? How do new Asian immigrants and their children adapt to American life?

This is the first book that systematically delves into post-1965 Asian immigration to the United States and covers a wide range of issues, such as immigration causes and trends; settlement and adaptation patterns; types of immigrants; immigrant transnationalism; undocumented immigration; and the demographic, racial/ethnic, economic, sociocultural, and political impacts of Asian immigration. Importantly, the author develops a novel synthetic theory for explaining Asian immigration and demonstrates support for it in both historical and contemporary contexts. The book also provides a vast amount of the latest generalizable quantitative data on Asian immigration.

Combining rigorous scholarship with engaging readability, Asian Immigration to the United States will be an invaluable text for college and graduate students of immigration, Asian American studies, and race and ethnicity, as well as an excellent reference book for scholars and policymakers.
