"In this pathbreaking volume, Velina Hasu Houston gathers together eleven plays that speak in "hybridized, unique American voices of Asian descent - and often dissent." These writers resist the bigotry that targets them solely as people of color as well as the homogenizing tendencies of a multiculturalism that fails to recognize the varied make-up of Asian American experience while demonstrating the different styles and thematic concerns of individual playwrights."--BOOK JACKET.
