This exciting new reference presents full or excerpted speeches, sermons, orations, poems, testimony and other notable spoken words of Asian Americans. Each entry is accompanied by an introduction and boxes explaining terms and events to which the speech refers. The volume is illustrated with photographs and drawings. Look for the broadcast journalistic styles of Connie Chung and David Suzuki; the congressional debates of S.I. Hayakawa and Spark Matsunaga; and the lectures of writers Joy Kogawa or Bette Bao Lord.
