Abstract
Many compilations have been published on Asian Pacific Americans over the past several years, but none have really challenged existing theoretical assumptions about the "everyday spaces" in contemporary Asian Pacific American communities until now. In Contemporary Asian American Communities: Intersections and Divergences, co-edited by Linda Trinh Vo and Rick Bonus, an array of scholars are challenging established scholarly notions about a wide range of topics including the meanings of community, sexual and multi-racial identities, professional and political networks, and new modes of cultural production for Asian Pacific Americans.
