Daisy Ball is assistant professor of sociology at Framingham State University. Nicholas Daniel Hartlep is assistant professor of urban education at Metropolitan State University (St. Paul, Minnesota).
Daisy Ball and Nicholas Daniel Hartlep's Asian/Americans, Education, and Crime: The Model Minority as Victim and Perpetrator provides a much-needed examination of an understudied and misunderstood population. Each essay offers a penetrating analysis of some aspect of the complex intersection of race, education, the media, and the criminal justice system. Sweeping in its coverage, the volume collectively challenges the hegemonic narrative that Asian/Americans are a homogeneous group and "model minorities." The volume provides powerful and nuanced insights while highlighting the critical need for further investigations into the diverse lives of Asian/Americans. -- James Hawdon, Virginia Tech In Asian/Americans, Education, and Crime: The Model Minority as Victim and Perpetrator, Ball and Hartlep shine a radiant light of scrutiny that frees us from the `Model Minority' closet to be seen as authentic human beings who are both resilient and vulnerable to adverse social conditions. -- Suzanne SooHoo, Chapman University
