When Asians began to immigrate to the United States in the 1800s, they met with both gratitude for the labor they provided and mistrust for their culture, which was unfamiliar to Americans. This two-volume set traces the turbulent history of Asian Americans from their first arrival to the present day. After an introduction to each chapter, A-Z entries identify people, places, events, and terms to give a complete picture to students researching all aspects of Asian American history.
