In an extraordinary blend of eloquent narrative history, vivid personal recollection, and oral testimony, Ronald Takaki relates the diverse 150-year history of Asian Americans. Through richly detailed vignettes--by turns bitter, funny, and inspiring--he offers a stunning panorama of a neglected part of Americanhistory. 16 pages of photographs.

If you like reading personal accounts of Asian immigrant experiences this book is for you. I found it to be too much fluff making it longer than necessary and more tedious to read. However, it was also quite eye-opening. Basahin ang buong review

A good history book on Asians in America (including Hawaii). Lots of information and an easy read. Its not a pretty story - I didnt realize we actually tried to keep non-whites from being citizens right from the beginning and only wanted a white country. Hard stuff. Basahin ang buong review
