The relationships between children and their parents are the building blocks for f- ily relationships throughout life. The nature of the parent-child relationship begins with parenting-the practices and strategies that parents engage in as they raise their children. Parenting during childhood sets the stage for parent-adolescent relati- ships. These relationships make a critical difference during the teenage years: we know that when parent-adolescent relationships are healthy and strong, adolescents are more likely to have high aspirations and achievement, and to make healthier choices when it comes to risk-taking. Most of the research in this ?eld has been based in the United States and has been conducted through studies of European American families. Yet a growing body of research suggests important ethnic differences in styles of parenting and the qua- ties characterizing the parent-adolescent relationship. In this area of research, most existing studies have examined ethnic and cultural group differences using widely accepted measures and concepts of parenting. Comparative studies assume that dimensions of parenting such as parental warmth or control have the same meaning across cultures; however, given that conceptualizations of adolescent-parent re- tionships have been developed and tested on samples comprised largely of European Americans, we cannot rule out the possibility that the way we understand parenting has been shaped by the predominantly Western- and U. S. -focused research in this ?eld.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"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)
