This is the only anthology that covers several different topics related to Koreans' experiences in the U.S. and Canada. The topics covered are Koreans' immigration and settlement patterns, changes in Korean immigrants' business patterns, Korean immigrant churches' social functions, differences between Korean immigrant intact families and geese families, transnational ties, second-generation Koreans' identity issues, and Korean international students' gender issues. This book focuses on Korean Americans' twenty-first century experiences. It provides basic statistics about Koreans' immigration, settlement and business patterns, while it also provides meaningful qualitative data on gender issues and ethnic identity. The annotated bibliography on Korean Americans in Chapter 10 will serve as important guides for beginning researchers studying Korean Americans.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Koreans in North America: Their Twenty-First Century Experiences, authored by the dean of the Korean-American studies and supplemented with chapters by other leading experts on Korean-American life, offers a comprehensive source of rich and comparative data on Korean-American and Korean-Canadian communities. Deploying a sophisticated array of information acquired through the application of multiple research methods, this book addresses important topics related to Koreans' experiences in North America. Elegantly written and impeccably researched, Koreans in North America is a volume of exceptional value for students, scholars, policy makers and general readers interested in Korean Americans, Asian American studies, immigration history, and urban studies. The book features a comprehensive annotated bibliography on Korean Americans that will be an indispensable resource for research on Korean Americans. -- Steven J. Gold, professor of sociology, Michigan State University
A comprehensive overview of Korean Americans and Korean Canadians that is an invaluable resource for researchers and general readers alike. Highly recommended! -- David K. Yoo, University of Califoria Los Angeles, Asian American Studies Center
Professor Pyong Gap Min's anthology presents the most comprehensive examination of contemporary Korean communities in North America from multidisciplinary approaches. While covering different aspects of ethnic and immigrant experiences of Koreans, it offers nuanced and sophisticated analyses of the internal diversity across class, ethnicity, generation, gender, and religion within this seemingly homogeneous immigrant group. -- Min Zhou, Tan Lark Sye Chair Professor of Sociology at Nanyang Technological University and co-author of The Asian American Achievement Paradox
