Description

Written by the staff of A. Magazine, the nation's largest and most influential Asian American publication, this fully illustrated reference lays out the key ideas, people, fads, and phenomena that have crossed the Pacific to become part of our American way of life - from what we sleep on (futons) to what we wear (pajamas) to how we have sex (the Kamasutra); from what we read (Salman Rushdie and Amy Tan) to the movies we watch (Jackie Chan and Zhang Yimou) to how we stay healthy (acupuncture and ginseng) and relax (yoga and meditation).
