This booklet is a detailed primer on the Asian American experience in the United States covering history, family and acculturation, education, culture and the arts, economics, discrimination and violence, and politics. An introduction reviews some basic demographics and looks at racial issues in light of the riots in Los Angeles (California) in 1992. a chapter on history covers the experience of Asian Americans in the United States since the arrival of Asians in prehistoric times. A chapter on family and acculturation notes that a common characteristic of Asian Americans, whatever their heritage or land of origin, is an emphasis on the family. A chapter on education notes the accomplishments of many Asian Americans, treats problems of quotas, and looks closely at Asian American enrollment in higher education. A look at culture and the arts emphasizes the cultural richness and diversity among Asian Americans and obstacles they face in the theatrical arts. A chapter on economics argues that the economic profile of Asian Americans is far more complex than the statistics indicate. A discussion of discrimination and violence suggests that despite an image among other Americans of freedom from racial bigotry, many Asian Americans are confronted by prejudice in subtle and overt forms. A chapter on politics examines the reasons for relatively low levels of political participation. Contains 3 bar graphs, 5 tables, and 42 references. (Jb)

Dien Bien Phu : the epic battle America forgot by Howard R Simpson( Book )

2 editions published between 1994 and 1996 in English and held by 50 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The fighting began in November 1953, when French paratroopers seized a small airstrip in northwestern Vietnam. It ended in May 1954 with tens of thousands of Vietminh troops overrunning the besieged garrison. A third of the 15,000 defenders died in combat; fewer than a hundred escaped into the jungle. Thousands more died in captivity. Dien Bien Phu is recognized as one of history's great battles and as a turning point for American policy: the French defeat led to the fateful U.S. commitment to Vietnam. Ironically, the U.S. military repeated many of the French mistakes. American Howard R. Simpson was there as a combat reporter and photographer. His account is a personal one - that of a man who shared meals and wine and danger with the doomed soldiers. A much-published defense expert, Simpson is uniquely qualified to tell the dramatic story of this famous last stand. Aided by interviews with dozens of survivors from both sides - including victorious Gen. Vo Nguyen Giap - his book will rank with Bernard Fall's bestselling Hell in a Very Small Place as a classic work on an event as significant for the United States as it was for France. Dien Bien Phu is being published on the fortieth anniversary of the French defeat and contains rare combat photos by the author and the French Foreign Legion
