Grant, and exchanged ideas with their American peers that would change the course of both nations. But when anti-Chinese fervor forced them back home, the young men faced a new set of obstacles, having to overcome a suspicious imperial court and a culture deeply resistant to change Filled with colorful characters and vivid historical detail, Fortunate Sons unearths the dramatic stories of these young men who led China at the pivotal moment when it teetered between modernity and tradition.
Faced with Japanese aggression and Western colonialism on the one hand and domestic unrest and rebellion on the other, these American-educated men helped to shape China's economy, diplomacy, and government, relying on one another as they struggled to bring peace and progress to a crumbling empire Liel Leibovitz and Matthew Miller draw on diaries, letters, and other first-person accounts to tell this remarkable tale, weaving together the dramas of personal lives with the fascinating story of a nation's endeavor to become a world power.

Saint Paul : Graywolf Press, K6 T74 : Whenever she speaks to a stranger in her native Korea, Jane Jeong Trenka is forced to explain what she is. The answer—that she was adopted from Korea as a baby and grew up in the United States—is a source of grief, pride, and confusion Now, in this searching and provocative memoir, Trenka explores a new question: Can she make an adult life for herself in Korea? Despite numerous setbacks, Trenka resolves to learn the language and ways of her unfamiliar birth country In navigating the myriad contradictions and disjunctions that have made up her life, Trenka turns to the lessons from her past—in particular, the concept of dissonance and harmony learned over her years as a musician.
In Fugitive Visions , named after a composition by Prokofiev, Trenka has succeeded in braiding the disparate elements of her life into a recognizable and at times heartbreaking whole. Mimura film, media, and Asian American studies, Univ. One can hardly disagree that such films as Wayne Wang's Chan Is Missing have been overlooked in the formation of the international filmic canon, or find fault with Mimura's analysis of Cecil B. DeMille's The Cheat , which set the stage for the racist stereotypes in US cinema in the years that followed.
Many of the films Mimura examines have had limited circulation and challenge the supposedly "normative" values of contemporary society. Thus, in many ways, the title of this volume is sadly all too accurate; most of the films he discusses have only a "ghost life," if that, and one finishes the book wishing that these films were more readily available. Numerous frame blowups add to the value of the work.

H55 V35 : The first scholarly work to come from inside the Hmong community, Hmong America documents Chia Youyee Vang's own migration from Laos to Minnesota at age nine and the transformations she has witnessed in Hmong communities throughout the migration and settlement processes.
Vang depicts Hmong experiences in Asia and examines aspects of community building in America to reveal how new Hmong identities have been formed and how they have challenged popular assumptions about race and ethnicity in multicultural America With an approach that intermingles the archival research of a historian, the personal experiences of a refugee, and the participant-observer perspectives of a community insider, Vang constructs a nuanced and complex portrait of the more than , Hmong people who came to the United States as political refugees beginning in the mids.
She offers critiques of previous representations of the Hmong community and provides the sociological underpinnings for a bold reassessment of Hmong history in the greater context of globalization. This new understanding redefines concepts of Hmong homogeneity and characterizes ordinary Hmong migrants not as passive victims but as dynamic actors who have exercised much power over their political and social destinies While Vang focuses on the Hmong community in the Twin Cities, she also has conducted research in numerous Hmong enclaves in the United States and abroad.
In addition to recounting historical events, she incorporates the voices of those who personally experienced and informed the development of ethnic and faith-based traditions, political mobilization around unequal treatment of Hmong Americans, and changing aesthetics and cultural politics regarding ethnic celebrations.

This introduction to their experience in Michigan discusses Hmong American history, culture, and more specifically how they left homelands filled with brutality and warfare to come to the United States since the mids. More than five thousand Hmong Americans live in Michigan, and many of them have faced numerous challenges as they have settled in the Midwest. How did these brave and innovative people adapt to strange new lives thousands of miles away from their homelands?
How have they preserved their past through time and place, advanced their goals, and cultivated plans for their children and education? What are their lives like in the diaspora?

Lanham, MD : Lexington Books, c Sahay acknowledges that host country policies create the necessary conditions for brain drain to take place, but argues that source countries may also benefit from out-migration of their workers and students.
These benefits are measured as remittances, investments, and savings associated with return, and social networking that links expatriates with their country of origin. Through success and visibility in host societies, diaspora workers further influence economic and political benefits for their home countries. This type of brain gain becomes an element of soft power for the source country in the long term. In light of this, Caroline Rody proposes a new paradigm for understanding the changing terrain of contemporary fiction.
She claims that what we have long read as ethnic literature is in the process of becoming 'interethnic'.
