"Linda Vo and Rick Bonus identify the importance of 'everyday spaces' as critical sites for understanding changes occurring in Asian Pacific American communities. Essays in this book cover a wide range of topics, including youth, ethnically diverse populations, professional sectors, gays and lesbians, the urban poor, and multiracial communities. The editors stimulate and provoke new thinking about the ways that our communities are responding to developments in politics, technology, and cultural production." --Glenn Omatsu, Associate Editor, Amerasia Journal, UCLA Asian American Studies Center, and co-editor of Asian Americans: The Movement and Moment
