After emerging from the tumult of social movements of the 1960s and 1970s, the field of Asian American studies has enjoyed rapid and extraordinary growth. Nonetheless, many aspects of Asian American history still remain open to debate. The Oxford Handbook of Asian American History offers the first comprehensive commentary on the state of the field, simultaneously assessing where Asian American studies came from and what the future holds. In this volume, thirty leading scholars offer original essays on a wide range of topics. The chapters trace Asian American history from the beginning of the migration flows toward the Pacific Islands and the American continent to Japanese American incarceration and Asian American participation in World War II, from the experience of exclusion, violence, and racism to the social and political activism of the late twentieth century. The authors explore many of the key aspects of the Asian American experience, including politics, economy, intellectual life, the arts, education, religion, labor, gender, family, urban development, and legal history. The Oxford Handbook of Asian American History demonstrates how the roots of Asian American history are linked to visions of a nation marked by justice and equity and to a deep effort to participate in a global project aimed at liberation. The contributors to this volume attest to the ongoing importance of these ideals, showing how the mass politics, creative expressions, and the imagination that emerged during the 1960s are still relevant today. It is an unprecedentedly detailed portrait of Asian Americans and how they have helped change the face of the United States.

"Focusing on Britain, France, and Germany, this book shows how the government surveillance of activists from the British and French colonies contributed to the transnationalization of anti-colonialist networks and ideologies during the first half of the twentieth century. Between 1905 and 1945, anti-colonialists who were active in western Europe and the pro-colonial authorities forced each other to expand the reach of their networks across inner-European borders. This process led both the supporters and the opponents of colonial rule to conceptualize their conflict in more global and trans-imperial terms, and it brought to light widespread disagreements between those Europeans who wished to prioritize imperial security over civil liberties and national sovereignty, and those who held the opposite view. In that context, the book traces growing levels of transnational government cooperation against anti-colonialists, and it pays special attention to the role of Germany, a country where many anti-colonialists were able to carry out their political work in relative safety after escaping increasing levels of government surveillance in Britain and France"--Provided by publisher.
