Recommended Asian American Literature - Grades 9-12
Non-Fiction: History Gage, Susan. Colonialism in Asia: A Critical Look
Victoria, Canada: Victoria International Development
Education Association. (1993). 52 pp.
Format: paperback; Ethnicity: Pan-Asian
This comic book presents a serious subject in an engaging format – a series of cartoons that illustrate the causes and effects of colonialism in India, Vietnam and the Philippines. Its nine chapters examine the motives of European colonialism, the means by which it developed, and its current ramifications in Asia. The comic book provides an excellent framework for analyzing colonialism and its effects on the government, economy and social structure of each country. In addition, the cartoons connect the development of colonialism with current problems in the former colonies (e.g. the rise of multinational corporations, military dictatorships).
The book is presented in a useful format for teachers. Each chapter includes discussion questions that enable students to think deeper about colonialism and its effects. The last chapter includes classroom activities that supplement each previous chapter. Teachers are recommended to use the book alongside conventional textbooks to discuss bias in history, as the book’s bias against colonialism can be contrasted with the bias of textbook accounts.

'All of Seattle' to read Lee's novel
By Carol N. Vu
Northwest Asian Weekly
Coming to a bookshelf near you: Chang-rae Lee's A Gesture Life.
Lee's 1999 novel has been chosen by organizers for the next installment of "If All of Seattle Read the Same Book," a reading program that's now in its fifth year.
One of the reasons A Gesture Life was selected was because of its ability to appeal to a variety of audiences, according to Chris Higashi, co-founder of the reading program and associate director of the Washington Center for the Book at the Seattle Public Library.
Lee's work has great "cross-over appeal" among mainstream readers and critics, as well as Asian American readers, she said.
"We hope people will feel a sense of community through the shared experience of reading and talking . . . with the author and other readers, people both like and unlike themselves," Higashi said.
She believes the novel's main character, Franklin "Doc" Hata, a Korean, will resonate with many people, regardless of race or culture.

70. Prospects For Our Youth
their homesickness by associating with people from their of the first generation isa notable feat, but his article Triumph of the Asian American, Bell cited
Prospects for Our Youth Written by Dr. Haewon Han Not too long ago, I attended the Conference on South-East Asian Refugee Hygiene held at Wisconsin University. There were about 150 participants whose occupations ranged from medical doctors and nurses to social workers and sociologists. About two-thirds of the participants were from South Asian countries (Vietnam, Cambodia, Thailand, and Laos, and the remaining were from the U.S. It seemed that everyone in the room was agreeing with what he said. The discussion leader Dr. M, an American, looked around the room, and I, with courage that I didn’t know I had, raised my hand. "When we look at the statistics, first generation immigrants usually say that they never feel that they’re Americans, no matter how long they have lived here. As for the second generation descendants, who go to school here, live and grow up speaking English, the American culture becomes their own, and for the third generation, the culture and language of the first generation eventually becomes foreign to them. "The majority of us here are first generation immigrants from Asia. Before our children ask us questions that would be difficult for us to answer, we have to acquaint ourselves with U.S. immigration history and become confident of our position. If we can show them our pride and dignity, we will be able to help our children define their identities, so they will not have to experience such a severe case of ‘Identity Crisis.’ There are a lot of books out there about immigration history. The most helpful book that I read was Thomas Sowell’s

Overall, children's and young adult books with Native American Indian characters and themes have improved dramatically since I was a kid. We have a lot more to pick from than the Sacajewea and Pocahontas biographies, the tales of "savagery" on the Prairie. Looking at those writers who've focused a significant portion of their work in this area, Native authors as well as non-Native authors with strong community ties (or those who did their homework), it's clear that there are some quality books now available.

What's the Story Behind All Those Asians in the Import Scene? By Susan Kwon It started as a joke, to write a research paper on "rice rockets" for my graduate seminar class while I was at Stanford. I mean why not? My professor was so old, he couldn't care less what we wrote about. I've seen the Asian guys and girls hanging out at AMC Mercado Movie Theaters in Sunnyvale and In-N-Out Burgers in Milpitas with their souped up Honda's and Integra's. Being from LA, I knew something about "Imports" but never did I imagine that the Import scene could be so deep. So what started as a joke developed into my master's thesis. Who would have ever thought that you could get away with writing about Import cars for your master's thesis at Stanford? This article is a small part of my thesis. I present the Import scene as a unique Asian American youth subculture. I bring out the ways in which "Asianness" is asserted-a claim to Asian influence and origin of the Import subculture. My interpretation of the Import scene comes from hanging out with a specific car team in the Bay Area, which I will keep anonymous. I also attended many of the Import car shows in both Los Angeles and the Bay Area and visited many of the related websites. It is important to look at the Import subculture, made up predominantly of Asian American (including Pacific Islander) males from 16-25 year of age in a larger context of youth culture in the United States. The act of modifying the look and performance of the car has a long history in American culture. You have your white males and their "hot rodders," who modify, race and drive American cars (or "muscle cars") such as Mustangs, Chevrolets, and Impalas. You also have Latino males with their "low riders." This Import subculture shared among many Asian American youths may be viewed as an extension of a larger, male dominated, car-based cultural phenomenon. Yet

Dr. Yang will take you through a comparative history of Taiwanese Americans and Asian Americans, alluding to challenges, stereotypes, and victories that you may have already experienced without knowing it.
H ello everyone! Welcome to the workshop. My name is Bruce Yang. The objective of this workshop is to discuss the role of Taiwanese American in Asian American history. Have you wondered how Taiwanese Americans fit into Asian American history? How are Taiwanese Americans unique to other Asian groups? Like most Asian immigrants, Taiwanese immigrants came to this country for the land of freedom and pursue of endless opportunities. Like most Asian Americans, Taiwanese Americans in this country also have to face the American culture of racial stereotyping, institutional discrimination, and deep seeded anti-Asian sentiment. Despite these challenges, like most Asian Americans, Taiwanese Americans have excelled and succeeded in various professions and different fields. But unlike most other Asian Americans, Taiwanese Americans constantly have to face a marginalization of our Taiwanese American identity. For example, a typical conversation goes like this:
