520    "This book is a ground-breaking transnational study of 
       representations of the environment in Asian American 
       literature. Extending and renewing Asian American studies 
       and ecocriticism by drawing the two fields into deeper 
       dialogue, it brings Asian American writers to the center 
       of ecocritical studies. This collection demonstrates the 
       distinctiveness of Asian American writers' positions on 
       topics of major concern today: environmental justice, 
       identity and the land, war environments, consumption, 
       urban environments, and the environment and creativity. 
       Represented authors include Amy Tan, Maxine Hong Kingston,
       Ruth Ozeki, Ha Jin, Fae Myenne Ng, Le Ly Hayslip, Lan Cao,
       Mitsuye Yamada, Lawson Fusao Inada, Jeanne Wakatsuki 
       Houston, Milton Murayama, Don Lee, Mae Myenne Ng, and 
       Hisaye Yamamoto. These writers provide a range of 
       perspectives on the historical, social, psychological, 
       economic, philosophical, and aesthetic responses of Asian 
       Americans to the environment conceived in relation to 
       labor, racism, immigration, domesticity, global capitalism,
       relocation, pollution, violence, and religion. 
       Contributors apply a diversity of critical frameworks, 
       including critical radical race studies, counter-memory 
       studies, ecofeminism, and geomantic criticism. The book 
       presents a compelling and timely "green" perspective 
       through which to understand key works of Asian American 
       literature and leads the field of ecocriticism into 
       neglected terrain"--|cProvided by publisher.
