Strangers from a Different Shore: A History of Asian Americans (Compact Disc)

Strangers from a Different Shore: A History of Asian Americans Cover Image
By Ronald Takaki, David Shih (Read by)
Special Order (email to check availability)


In an extraordinary blend of narrative history, personal recollection, and oral testimony, the author presents a sweeping history of Asian Americans. He writes of the Chinese who laid tracks for the transcontinental railroad, of plantation laborers in the cane fields of Hawaii, and of picture brides marrying strangers in the hope of becoming part of the American dream. He tells stories of Japanese-Americans behind the barbed wire of U.S. internment camps during World War II, Hmong refugees tragically unable to adjust to Wisconsin's alien climate and culture, and Asian-American students stigmatized by the stereotype of the model minority. This is a powerful and moving work that will resonate for all Americans, who together make up a nation of immigrants from other shores.
