"A valuable collection of essays focusing on a broad array of issues concerning Asian/Pacific Islander women. This collection is recommended to all who share these concerns across various fields and disciplines."--Western Historical Quarterly "This rich collection heralds the growing significance of Asian/Pacific Islander American women in American history and women's history. The essays cover an impressive breadth of historical periods, specific groups of women, and topics. The volume showcases the diverse research of emerging scholars. These diverse subjects call forth new and creative approaches in research and writing, and this collection both demonstrates and promises exciting advances in the content and methods of historical studies."--The Journal of American History "Hune and Nomura have produced a much-needed anthology that will contribute in a substantial way to introductory courses in their field. The book also does much to elevate Asian-American women beyond the secondary roles to which they too often have been relegated in male-dominated texts. For this service alone, all of us who teach and seek to understand further the Asian-American experience owe them our gratitude."--American Historical Review
