Really good book. History of Asians in America - lots of stuff we never learned in school! I really learned alot from this book and will definatley keep it and recommend it.

Helen Zia highlights the decades of discrimination Asian Americans have undergone, with personal anecdotes at the beginning of each chapter. Highly informative, although I would have liked Zia to include more Asian American voices in place of nitty-gritty historical details.
