This unique book brings fresh insight into Asian American women's lives by exploring the relationships they form together. Addressing the sociocultural, political, historical, and familial contexts that contribute to the development of their relationships, contributors paint rich and refreshingly complex portraits of Asian American women. Throughout, the authors give voice to the many ethnic groups that make up the Asian American community.
This book focuses on how issues inherent in any relationship—attachment, communication style, power and trust—are manifested in both unique and universal ways by Asian American women. Experiential data, empirical studies, and case examples bring the diversity of these women's experiences alive. This book is a testament to the importance of relationships for these women. A must-read for women's studies scholars, social scientists, and multicultural psychologists.
