Disintegrations and reconsolidations; Part IV. Placing Asian America: 7. War, the homeland, and the traces of memory; 8. Demarcations and fissures: reconstructing space; Part V. Mind Readings: 9.

This book argues that the invention of Asian American identities serves as an index to the historical formation of modern America. By tracing constructions of "Asian America" to an interpenetrating dynamic between Asia and America, the author obtains a deeper understanding of key issues in American culture, history, and society.
