MEDIA REVIEWS
"This welcome three-volume encyclopedia is the latest addition to a growing number of reference works on the subject. Primarily focused on the social, cultural, economic, and political aspects of Asian Americans in the United States, it encompasses Native Hawaiians and Pacific Islanders. . . . The set's 55 primary documents are an important feature; they include useful legal background central to the Asian American experience, e.g., Japanese American redress via the Civil Liberties Act of 1988. . . . Recommended." - Choice
"This encyclopedia would be most useful for any researcher looking for information on Asian Americans and their history, especially where there is an Asian American population. Recommended for academic and public libraries." - Booklist
"This work will serve as a one-stop resource for those looking for accurate information on important policies, events, and notable individuals from this population. . . . The set is highly recommended." - ARBA
"Included in the set is an excellent list of primary documents with excerpts from selected documents, cross-referenced to related entries. This will help lead researchers from the fact-seeking stage of research to original research with primary resources. This list is useful for students, faculty in Asian American studies and librarians seeking to create collections and guides linking to publicly available primary sources." - Reference Reviews
"This is a unique publication that manages to bring together the many threads of Asian American life in the USA. Articles are written in a very accessible style that explains and details the topic clearly, making this very appropriate and highly recommended for high school and college libraries." - Reference Reviews
