Phoenix eyes and other stories by Russell Leong( )

5 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 1,181 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In styles ranging from naturalism to high-camp parody, Leong goes beneath stereotypes of immigrant and American-born Chinese, hustlers and academics, Buddhist priests and street people. Displacement and marginalization - and the search for love and liberation - are persistent themes. Leong's people are set apart, by sexuality, by war by AIDS, by family dislocations."--BOOK JACKET
Asian American sexualities : dimensions of the gay and lesbian experience by Russell Leong( Book )

13 editions published between 1995 and 2014 in English and held by 410 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Asian American Sexualities works to dispel the stereotype of oriental sexual decadence, as well as the "model minority" heterosexual Asian sterotype in the US. Writing from an impressive array of interdisciplinary perspectives, the contributors discuss a variety of topics, including sexuality and identity politics; community activism and gay activism; transnational aspects of love between women in Thailand; queer South Asian culture in the US; gay and lesbian filmmakers; same-sex sexuality in Pacific literature; and Asian American male homosexuality and AIDS. The relationship of the gay and lesbian experience to Asian American studies and Ethnic Studies is also explored

A history reclaimed : an annotated bibliography of Chinese language materials on the Chinese of America by H. Mark Lai( Book )

3 editions published in 1986 in English and held by 152 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Because past frames of reference and perspectives on Chinese Americans have relied mainly on English language sources, they seldom reflected the attitudes and experiences of the Chinese themselves. This bibliography attempts to remedy that situation by listing over 1,500 available works in the Chinese language which can be found in libraries and institutions in the United States. It is based on three major collections in Northern California: the East Asian Collection of the Hoover Institution of War, Revolution and Peace at Stanford University; the East Asian Collection of the University of California at Berkeley; and the Collection of the Chinese Historical Society of America. The main categories of reference materials included in the bibliography are: general works and handbooks; publications of organizations and institutions, and special publications; biographies and travel accounts; belles letters and essays; newspapers and periodicals; manuscripts; and miscellaneous. These items are grouped into the following subject categories: (1) background to emigration; (2) overseas Chinese; (3) immigration and exclusion; (4) Chinese in America; (5) directories; (6) Chinese American organizations; (7) economy and business; (8) biographies and travel accounts; (9) sociocultural materials; (10) Chinese politics; (11) journalism; and (12) literature.

Freedom without justice : the prison memoirs of Chol Soo Lee by Chol Soo Lee( )

2 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 109 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Freedom without Justice is a compelling story of ex-inmate Chol Soo Lee's wrongful incarceration and the actions he took to survive years in prison, while political activists fought to win his retrial and freedom. It is at once a captivating chronicle of his life, a trenchant description of how prisons produce the very behaviors they purport to punish and prevent, and a poignant remembrance of an important chapter in Asian American history following the passage of the 1965 Immigration Act. At the age of twelve, Chol Soo immigrated to the United States from South Korea to reunite with his mother, who had arrived earlier as a military bride. In less than a decade, Chol Soo finds himself labeled as a violent criminal, convicted, and incarcerated for murder. His case quickly became a rallying point for an extraordinary pan-Asian American movement in the late 1970s and early 1980s, bringing together foreign- and American-born Asians in a common cause of justice and freedom. Organized under a national network of the Chol Soo Lee Defense Committee, supporters included student activists, elderly immigrants, small business owners, white-collar professionals, social workers, lawyers, religious and legal organizations, and left-wing groups nationwide. The united front was a remarkable coalition of people from a broad spectrum of social backgrounds that transcended ethnicity, class, political ideology, religion, generation, and language. This diverse grassroots social movement organized a six-year "Free Chol Soo Lee!" campaign that led to Lee's historic release from San Quentin's Death Row in 1983. Freedom without Justice provides a rare and valuable glimpse into a pivotal moment when the Asian American movement spearheaded one of its first major political campaigns. While the case inspired newspaper headlines, TV specials, and even a Hollywood movie, until now the full story has never been told in Chol Soo Lee's own voice. As a chronicle of the life of a youth at risk, during a time when Asian American inmates were scarce, and Korean Americans even scarcer, his story draws readers into a variety of social worlds--war-torn Korea, the streets of San Francisco, the criminal justice system, prison gang politics, and death row
The truth in rented rooms by Koon Woon( Book )

2 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 58 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Typed out in cramped tenement rooms or scrawled on bits of paper, Koon Woon's poetry probes the lonely world of itinerants, and of the dispossessed found in the shadows of immigrant life in America. His beat is in narrow Chinatown alleyways, Greek diners, damp hotel rooms and emptying city parks. It is also a place of chance encounters and lingering epiphanies, pieced together through ruminations on Eastern and Western philosophical traditions. Ranging in style from classical lyricism to syllabic construction, Woon's poetry also visits pre-Mao China, and the poet's pastoral childhood. These penetrating yet playful poems attest to a fully realized imagination. Koon Woon was born in a small village near Canton in 1949 an immigrated to the U.S. in 1960. A student of philosophy, mathematics, and modal logic, he is also the publisher of a literary magazine, Chrysanthemum. He has lived in Seattle most of his adult life

1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 26 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This unique work opens a field of inquiry around place-based critiques of global capital as it focuses on the interactions between local issues and international financial flows.

This ambitious study will be an invaluable resource and launching point for scholar

Out of the dust : new and selected poems by Janice Mirikitani( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Out of the Dust is a collection of new poems by activist, leader, poet, and editor Janice Mirikitani. After being named San Francisco's second Poet Laureate in 2000, this fifth book of poems from Mirikitani was written in response to the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001. Drawing from her own background as a Sansei (third generation) Japanese American, Mirikitani reflects on the many ways we connect through the dust and our ability to rise and renew ourselves from this place. From the dust of the World Trade Center in New York to the retaliatory ashes of the dead in America's war in Afghanistan, the poems in this volume seek to explicate the connections of our humanity to the reactionary profiling of people of Middle Eastern descent and different ethnicities, comparing these choices to the incarceration of Japanese Americans during World War II. Mirikitani's poems cover topics about rape, incest, the continued struggle for justice and economic equality, and the poet's experiences throughout her 50-year career at Glide Foundation and Church in San Francisco, where she has helped to create groundbreaking programs for the poor, women and children, and those who are healing from sexual assault, violence and abuse. Though constructed from a depth of experiences with struggle, these poems also erupt in celebration of marriage, daughters, and the discovery of self through diversity."--Publisher's description

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Imperialism, diasporic and refugee cultures and economies, national cinemas, transpacific art, and the view of the transpacific from Asia.

But regardless of the individual view, what the essays gathered here collectively demonstrate is the energy, excitement, and insight that can be generated from within a transpacific framework
