Asian American society : an encyclopedia by Mary Yu Danico( )

18 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 816 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Asian Americans are a growing, minority population in the United States. After a 46 percent population growth between 2000 and 2010 according to the 2010 Census, there are 17.3 million Asian Americans today. Yet Asian Americans as a category are a diverse set of peoples from over 30 distinctive Asian-origin subgroups that defy simplistic descriptions or generalizations. They face a wide range of issues and problems within the larger American social universe despite the persistence of common stereotypes that label them as a "model minority" for the generalized attributes offered uncritically in many media depictions. Published with the Association for Asian American Studies (AAAS), two volumes of this new four-volume Encyclopedia feature more than 300 A-to-Z articles authored by AAAS members and experts in the field who examine the social, cultural, psychological, economic, and political dimensions of the Asian American experience. The next two volumes of this work contain approximately 200 annotated primary documents, organized chronologically, that detail the impact American society has had on reshaping Asian American identities and social structures over time
The 1.5 generation : becoming Korean American in Hawaii by Mary Yu Danico( Book )

7 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 426 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Danico examines the history of Koreans in Hawai'i, their social characteristics, and current demographics. Hawai'i's Korean Americans must negotiate between three cultures: Korean, American, and "local." Danico discusses what it means to be local and its unique effects on the immigrant experience to determine the conditions under which Koreans in Hawai'i define themselves as first generation, Korean American, local, or 1.5 generation. Her close consideration of socio-cultural influences firmly establishes the 1.5 generation in the mainstream discussion of identity formation and race relations
