The dramatic increase in the number and proportions of Asian American students over the last two decades has influenced the curricula and academic programs of many colleges and universities. This book provides background for the study of Asian American issues through data on sociologically important variables and issues for Asian Americans as a whole and for each group separately. Some of the issues explored in the following chapters are occupational and economic adjustment, assimilation and ethnicity, intermarriage, intergroup relations, demographic patterns, and marital and family adjustment: (1) "Introduction" (Pyong Gap Min); (2) "An Overview of Asian Americans" (Pyong Gap Min); (3) "Major Issues Relating to Asian American Experiences" (Pyong Gap Min); (4) "Chinese Americans" (Morrison G. Wong); (5) "Japanese Americans" (Setsuko Matsunaga Nishi); (6) "Filipino Americans" (Pauline Agbayani-Siewert); (7) "Asian Indian Americans" (Manju Sheth); (8) "Korean Americans" (Pyong Gap Min); (9) "Vietnamese, Laotian, and Cambodian Americans" (Ruben G.
