Margins and Mainstreams

Asians in American History and Culture

By Gary Y. Okihiro
Preface by Moon-Ho Jung, Introduction by Gary Y. Okihiro
In this classic book on the meaning of multiculturalism in larger American society, Gary Okihiro explores the significance of Asian American experiences from the perspectives of historical consciousness, race, gender, class, and culture.

While exploring anew the meanings of Asian American social history, Okihiro argues that the core values and ideals of the nation emanate today not from the so-called mainstream but from the margins, from among Asian and African Americans, Latinos and American Indians, women, and the gay and lesbian community. Those groups in their struggles for equality, have helped to preserve and advance the founders’ ideals and have made America a more democratic place for all.

About the Authors

Gary Y. Okihiro is emeritus professor of international and public affairs at Columbia University.

Reviews

"A concise, highly readable, and state-of-the-art reflection on Asian American history by one of its leading scholars."—Western Historical Quarterly

"A convenient summary that deftly synthesizes recent scholarship exploring the intersections of race, ethnicity, gender, class, and culture among Asian Americans in the U.S. This stimulating and sophisticated treatment, written by a mature scholar, is well worth reading."—Choice
