Asian American Middleman Minority Theory: The Framework of an American Myth.
Wong, Eugene F.
Journal of Ethnic Studies, v13 n1 p51-88 Spr 1985
Challenges the view of Chinese and Japanese Americans as middlemen with its assumptions that Asian Americans are sojourners and unassimilable. Questions the equation of a middle class minority with a middleman minority, examining the roots of this myth in the relationship of Asian Americans to the White-Black racial dyad. (RDN)
