Asian American Fiction, History and Life Writing : International Encounters, Hardback Book

Asian American Fiction, History and Life Writing : International Encounters Hardback

Part of the Routledge Transnational Perspectives on American Literature series

Description

The last ten years have witnessed an enormous growth in American interest in Asia and Asian/American history.

In particular, a set of key Asian historical moments have recently become the subject of intense American cultural scrutiny, namely China's Cultural Revolution and its aftermath; the Korean American war and its legacy; the era of Japanese geisha culture and its subsequent decline; and China's one-child policy and the rise of transracial, international adoption in its wake.

Grice examines and accounts for this cultural and literary preoccupation, exploring the corresponding historical-political situations that have both circumscribed and enabled greater cultural and political contact between Asia and America.
