Abstract "This work takes seriously the ways in which Asian American studies has from its founding engaged with humanitarian crises and large-scale violations. Committed to extending this critical work across local/global, domestic/international, and immigrant/refugee frames, this collection relocates Asian America from the periphery to the center of human rights critique"-- Provided by publisher.
