BOOK DESCRIPTION

ASIAN AMERICANS ON WAR AND PEACE is the first book to respond to the tragic world events of September 11, 2001 from Asian American perspectives, from the vantage points of those whose lives and communities in America have been forged both by war and by peace. We are at a moment in our history, according to Roshni Rustomji-Kerns, when "the past and the future became the now."
