520    This book is a survey of literature by North American 
       writers of Asian descent, in terms of both national 
       origins (Chinese, Filipino, Japanese, Korean, South Asian,
       Vietnamese) and shared concerns. It introduces readers to 
       the distinctive literary history of each group of writers 
       and discusses issues that connect or divide these 
       different groups. Part One provides a literary history of 
       each constituent national group and underlines salient 
       historical events that have affected its writing. Part Two,
       addressing common racial issues such as nationalism, 
       representation, and crises of identity, explores the 
       forces that bind, divide, and foster exchange among 
       writers and critics of diverse origins. The volume is an 
       original and valuable guide and reference work for 
       students, teachers, and scholars in Asian American studies,
       ethnic studies, and American studies.
