Organized topically by group, with an in-depth overview essay on each group, the encyclopedia examines the myriad ethnic groups and histories that make up the Asian American population in the United States. “Asian American History and Culture” covers the political, social and cultural history of immigrants from East Asia, Southeast Asia, South Asia, the Pacific Islands and their descendants, as well as the social and cultural issues faced by Asian American communities, families and individuals in contemporary society. In addition to entries on various groups and cultures, the encyclopedia also includes articles on general topics such as parenting and child rearing, assimilation and acculturation, business, education and literature.
