The history and significance of Asian migration in North America are distinctive from those of European immigrants and their descendants. European Americans, in general, have enjoyed more geographical, cultural, and socio-economic mobility than Asian Americans. Physical mobility for the former group is closely linked to status but often signals economic and cultural barriers for the latter. Exploring the works of Chiang Yee, Hualing Nieh, David Wong Louie, Fae Myenne Ng, John Okada and Toshio Mori, this book highlights the significance of travelling in the Asian American experience, and demonstrates how heterogeneous Asian America has always been.
