9780313289026: Distinguished Asian Americans: A Biographical Dictionary

Asian Americans have made significant contributions to American society. This reference work celebrates the contributions of 166 distinguished Asian Americans. Most people profiled are not featured in any other biographical collection of noted Asian Americans. The Chinese Americans, Japanese Americans, Filipino Americans, Korean Americans, South Asian Americans (from India and Pakistan), and Southeast Asian Americans (from Cambodia, Laos, and Vietnam) profiled in this work represent more than 75 fields of endeavor. From historical figures to figure skater Michelle Kwan, this work features both prominent and less familiar individuals who have made significant contributions in their fields. A number of the contemporary subjects have given exclusive interviews for this work.

All biographies have been written by experts in their ethnic fields. Those profiled range widely from distinguished scientists and Nobel Prize winners to sports stars, from actors to activists, from politicians to business leaders, from artists to literary luminaries. All are role models for young men and women, and many have overcome difficult odds to succeed. These colorfully written, substantive biographies detail their subjects' goals, struggles, and commitments to success and to their ethnic communities. More than 40 portraits accompany the biographies and each biography concludes with a list of suggested reading for further research. Appendices organizing the biographies by ethnic group and profession make searching easy. This is the most current biographical dictionary on Asian Americans and is ideal for student research.

Review :

"[T]he Asian American population was the fastest growing minority from 1980 to 1990, increasing by almost 100 percent. Despite this fact, there are still relatively few reference works on this group. Here an excellent group of contributors document the lives of 166 distinguished Asian Americans, from scientists and Nobel prize winners like physicist Tsung Dao Lee to martial arts expert Bruce Lee and figure skater Michelle Kwan. Just the thing for most school, public, and college reference collections."-Library Journal

"A good purchase for school libraries or larger public libraries."-American Reference Books Annual

"For high-school and public libraries where there is a demand for materials."-Booklist/Reference Books Bulletin

"This resource will be useful for teens who must complete assignments on Asian Americans and do not know where to begin."-VOYA

"Entries, written by experts in the specific ethnic group, reflect the diversity of Asian Americans. The articles are well documented and each includes a brief bibliography....Recommended for academic and public libraries."-Choice

"This volume would be a good first source for teens assigned to report on famous people of various American cultures and it will give them enough information to be able to search intelligently elsewhere."-Reference for Students -- GaleGroup.com Reviews

..."[C]overs a wide range of Asian Americans, not just celebrities and familiar faces...[T]he text is accurate and easy to understand, but avoids talking down to the reader. This dictionary would be a logical addition to any high school library that needs multicultural material."-The Book Report
