Allmänna fakta



This definitive history of American xenophobia is "essential reading for anyone who wants to build a more inclusive society" (Ibram X. Kendi, New York Times-bestselling author of How to Be an Antiracist).

Impressively comprehensive and yet readable. You don't need to be a historian or academic to appreciate and be much better informed about the history of Asian America. There is a lot here that has never been taught in any social studies class or college history course. It is anti-racist must reading!

This is a book I didn’t even know about till a week ago but I couldn’t stop once I started listening to the audiobook. It’s a fascinating book about the people who migrated from different countries in Asia to the US from the 17th century till recently, and I think the author did a good job relaying both the political as well as the personal reasons for this migration. Along with the desperation of a people who want a better life, we also see the bigotry and xenophobia towards them and how these perceptions change based on world events, as well as based on what the politicians of US want Americans to feel. The chapters about the Japanese internment camps were particularly difficult to read.

This was very informative and I am glad to get the opportunity to expand my knowledge about this topic. My review is pretty incoherent because I’m just not in a mood to write anything today, but that doesn’t take away from the fact that I would definitely recommend this book if you are interested to learn this part of American history, which is not very well known nor considered very important to be taught.
