UCLA Asian American Studies Center Press


Since 1971, the Press has published Amerasia Journal, the leading interdisciplinary journal in Asian American Studies. After more than three decades and over 16,000 pages, Amerasia Journal has played an indispensable role in establishing Asian American Studies as a viable and relevant field of scholarship, teaching, community service, and public discourse. Amerasia Journal, according to founding publisher Don T. Nakanishi, "has benefited from and reflected a wide array of profound social changes that have occurred among Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders—be it their unprecedented growth and diversification, or their ever-increasing levels of access, representation, and achievement in American society's institutions and sectors that had long excluded, marginalized, or demonized them."
