May 28 @ 8:00 am - 9:00 am

8:00 a.m. – 9:00 a.m., MDT, Zoom Webinar Link

Please join Dean Elizabeth Kronk Warner for her monthly dean’s book review.  The book to be reviewed will be, Race, Rights, and the Asian American Experience, second edition by Angelo N Ancheta. This book was selected because May is Asian Pacific American Heritage Month.

Ancheta examines legal and social theories of racial discrimination, ethnic differences in the Asian American population, nativism, citizenship, language, school desegregation, and affirmative action. In the revised edition of this influential book. He analyzes recent legal cases involving political empowerment, language rights, human trafficking, immigrant rights, and affirmative action in higher education-many of which move the country farther away from the ideals of racial justice. On a more positive note, he reports on the progress Asian Americans have made in the corporate sector, politics, the military, entertainment, and academia.

The book is a skillful mixture of legal theories, court cases, historical events, and personal insights, this revised edition brings fresh insights to U.S. civil rights from an Asian American perspective.
