The Asian-origin population in the US constitutes the fastest growing racial/ethnic group. As of 2000, this group constitutes four percent of the total US population (twelve million). As a consequence, Asian American youth are quickly growing into their own subculture and carving out their own identities in American culture. Asian American Youth is the first collection to address a wide number of important topics about Asian American youth as a distinctive group apart from other groups such as Latinos and African Americans. This interdisciplinary volume covers such topics as Asian immigration, acculturation, assimilation, intermarriage, socialization, sexuality, and ethnic identification. The contributors show how Asian American youth have created an identity and space for themselves historically and in contemporary multicultural America.
