"A much needed and extremely thoughtful contribution to the scholarship on Asian American families. The authors rely on a variety of research methods to reveal patterns that challenge stereotypes and urge us to move beyond pan ethnic categories and explore the rich diversity among Asian Americans. This book is an exemplary study of culture and parenting."
(Niobe Way, President, Society for Research on Adolescence / Professor of Applied Psychology, New York University)
"In Asian American Parenting and Parent-Adolescent Relationships, Stephen Russell, Lisa Crockett and Ruth Chao have garnered a wealth of information on Asian American youth and their families, especially Chinese and Filipino Americans, and provided readers with exceptional insight into parenting influenced by cultural differences. .... The book is a highly informative reference for researchers, clinicians, and graduate students across multiple disciplines, including developmental, clinical, child, and school psychology, sociology, and anthropology as well as ethnic and women's studies. ... It is fascinating to understand how parenting goals, style and warmth are tinted by the colors of culture."
(Prathiba Nagabhushan, in Journal of Youth and Adolescence)
