This collection of case studies incorporates many voices from the Asian Pacific American business community. Through numerous interviews, Diana Wu demonstrates the unique position of Asian Pacific Americans in the U.S. workforce. Based on educational/professional statistics this group is often dubbed the model minority. Whether you embrace this depiction or reject it as a stereotype, the fact remains that the Asian Pacific American workforce among us is a valuable asset. Examine personal accounts of discrimination in the workplace, sexual harassment, and familial relations. This book offers Asian Pacific Americans strategies to cope with these and other issues, and to achieve their greatest expectations

This book should be an excellent text for undergraduate courses on diversity and work in general, and Asian Pacific American workers in particular. The writing balances an engaging style with useful theoretical concepts to encourage critical thinking and understanding...As any good book does, this volume by Wu simultaneously informs and raises new questions. -- Sharon M. Lee Journal Of Asian American Studies
