      Through the perspectives of mass politics, this book challenges popular misconceptions about Asian Americans as politically apathetic, disloyal, fragmented, unsophisticated and inscrutable by showcasing results of the Multi City Asian American Political Survey. Asian Americans are widely believed to be passive and compliant participants in the U.S. political process-if they participate at all. In this book, Pei-te Lien maps the actions and strategies of Asian Americans as they negotiate a space in the American political arena.

      Asian Americans represent a growing share of the national population and of the electorate. The lower political participation of Asian Americans has been raised as a concern. In the 21st century, Asian Americans have become a key Democratic Party constituency.   Scholarship on Asian American political participation has come a long way in a relatively short amount of time (e.g., Lien ; Lien, Conway, and Wong ; Nakanishi ).While early scholarship focused on voting, more recent work has expanded to examine other participatory activities (e.g., Phillips and Lee ; Wong et al. ).This has largely been possible thanks to data .

      Barbour and Wright claim that a potentially surprising feature of Asian American political participation is that they _____. separate public facilities for blacks and whites Southern laws mandating segregation had the practical effect of creating ______. Asian American Political Participation is the most comprehensive study to date of Asian American political behavior, including such key measures as voting, political donations, community organizing, and political protests. The book examines why some groups participate while others do not, why certain civic activities are deemed preferable to.
