Asian Americans are proportionally the fastest growing ethnic group in the United States. Over the past 30 years, Asian American psychology has been an emerging field, with an increasingly complex and sophisticated research base. Until recently, much of the work in the field has proceeded without a theoretical or methodological framework. Asian American Psychology offers such a framework for the conceptual and methodological development of Asian American psychology and provides future research directions by experts in the field.
The book demonstrates that Asian American are a heterogeneous group that must be understood in context, with multiple racial, ethnic, gender, and cultural identities. Conceptual and methodological models highlighted in this volume contribute parallel advances not only in the psychological studies of other ethnic minority groups but in the psychological research of an increasingly multicultural and increasingly global American population.
