Abstract:
"The second edition of this popular book adds important new research on how racial stereotyping is gendered and sexualized. New interviews show that Asian American men feel emasculated in America's male hierarchy. Women recount their experiences of being exoticized, subtly and otherwise, as sexual objects. The new data reveal how race, gender, and sexuality intersect in the lives of Asian Americans. The text retains all the features of the renowned first edition, which offered the first in-depth exploration of how Asian Americans experience and cope with everyday racism. The book depicts the 'double consciousness' of many Asian Americans--experiencing racism but feeling the pressures to conform to popular images of their group as America's highly achieving 'model minority.'" --Publisher's Web site.
