Roots: an Asian American reader by Amy Tachiki( Book )

4 editions published in 1971 in English and held by 333 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A documentary collection of the experiences of Asian Americans from a multitude of perspectives, including a scholarly focus and also containing contemporary expressions, comprises "Roots: An Asian American Reader." The volume is said to be designed to meet the needs of Asian Americans by providing a compilation of materials in readily accessible form. Three major sections (Identity, History, and Community) encompass 61 contributions. The bulk of the Identity section deals with Asian American stereotypes and the changing relationships of Asians to them. The central section deals with the history of Asian Americans dating from the emigration period to present times. The Community section of the reader focuses upon three interrelated aspects of the Asian American communities: perspectives on community concept and community organization, analysis of community problems, and documentation of the Asian American movement. This volume is held to be focused on the attitudes, problems, and movements of Asian American youth. It is suggested that this focus be interpreted in light of the long struggle for justice and equality by generations of Asian Americans and in light of current Third World movements. Two questions believed not to have been adequately covered are the relationship of any ethnically based struggle to others, such as other ethnic groups or economic class-oriented ones, and that of the problem of maintaining a cultural heritage

Entrys by Peter Bacho( Book )

2 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 142 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

After being wounded in Vietnam, nineteen-year-old Rico Divina is sent home to a string of low-paying jobs and shabby apartments while trying to cope with the demons inside him. As an "Indipino" (half Yakima, half Filipino), Rico has come up against obstacles all his life--those of race, culture, nationality, and now the experience of war--that have left him without hope. In time he embarks on a course that is self-destructive and increasingly violent. People and situations present themselves, offering him the chance to turn his life around, but Rico, whether from lack of faith or pride, rejects them. The only thing that sustains him is writing his own story with a happy ending--something he has long suspected he will never have
Hakka soul : memories, migrations, and meals by Woon Ping Chin( Book )

2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 138 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Chin Woon Ping's Hakka Soul chronicles the dreams, ambitions and idiosyncrasies of her family, beginning with the death of her grandmother in pre-independence Malaya. It was a tumultuous period when the occupying Japanese army had just been defeated, the British colonial government was losing its grip on the country and a Communist guerilla insurgency had broken out in the jungles of the Malay peninsula. Her stories follow the family's move to the United States and a journey to China to visit her father's ancestral home." "The family's migrations are part of the global diaspora of the Hakkas, known in China as the Guest People. Chin's poetically and amusingly rendered accounts of Hakka history, language and mythology derived from research and oral history are a moving tribute to the endurance of her people and their culture, and a paean to the incomparable Hakka cuisine."--BOOK JACKET
