Summary
"Does "Asian American" denote on ethnic or racial identification? Is a person of mixed ancestry, the child of Euro- and Asian American parents, Asian American? What does it mean to refer to first-generation Hmong refugees and fifth-generation Chinese Americans both as Asian American?"--BOOK JACKET. "In Disoriented: Asian Americans, Law, and the Nation-State, Robert Chang examines the current discourse on race and law and the implications of postmodern theory and affirmative action - all of which have largely excluded Asian Americans - in order to develop a theory of critical Asian American legal studies."--Jacket
