Contemporary Issues in Southeast Asian American Studies is the first anthology to critically examine Southeast Asian Americans and their communities. It offers contemporary perspectives of renowned Southeast Asian American scholars to complement insightful primary-source documents. Together, these selections highlight Southeast Asian American experiences from interdisciplinary and cross-cultural comparative approaches, and explore such topics and themes as: history, cultural productions, political activism and apathy, and economic and social integration. The essays are written in clear, jargon-free language accessible to undergraduate students, and each is followed by pedagogically engaging and provocative discussion questions. Students are encouraged to not only identify challenges and struggles but also to devise solutions to the difficult topics discussed in each chapter.
