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.

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
