Race and Resistance: Literature and Politics in Asian America examines the idealisation of Asian America by its intellectuals, the saturation of Asian America with capitalist practices, and the challenges posed by Asian America's ideological diversity. Viet Nguyen argues that Asian American intellectuals need to examine their own assumptions about race, culture, and politics, and he makes his case through the example of literature, which still remains a cultural arena of cultural production for Asian Americans. Significantly, in examining Asian American literature, what we find is that the literature embodies the complexities, conflicts, and potential future options of Asian American culture.
