"The complexity, diversity, and internal contestations of Asian American literary studies are traced and enacted in An Interethnic Companion to Asian American Literature, edited by King-Kok Cheung. The six essays in its first half are organized according to ethnicity; the five in the second half are thematic and comparative. Bringing together established scholars and relative newcomers to the field, the volume provides an excellent historical and critical overview for nonspecialists as well as complex analyses, from a number of theoretical perspectives..." SIGNS "...insightful...the collection makes a valuable contribution to those who are trained in the field, to scholars in American Studies, and to scholars of other literatures."
