Transnational American Studies have been developed by international and internationally minded scholars to address the need for border-crossing awareness, knowledge and consciousness of difference. In a decisive change from the comparativist pattern of investigation between two or more assumed units, the transnational approach intends a further opening of cultural systems. With their transnational turn, the focus of American Studies has become relocated to increasingly international and global concerns of knowledge production and cultural transfer as well as to multi- and transnational discourses.0This volume combines Transnational American Studies from diverse angles in the four general areas ?Repositioning the American South?, ?Life, Literature, Ecocriticism?, ?Life Writing and Medicine? and ?Critical Studies of the Nation?. Written by scholars disciplinarily and institutionally linked to American Studies departments mainly, the themes are, however, not restricted to American Studies as a nationally bound field, but extend and pertain to transnational and global discourses and their conceptual composition and processing.

This anthology is the perfect introduction to Asian American studies, as it both defines the field across disciplines and illuminates the centrality of the experience of Americans of South Asian, East Asian, Southeast Asian, and Filipino ancestry to the study of American culture, history, politics, and society. The reader is organized into two parts: "The Documented Past" and "Social Issues and Literature." Within these broad divisions, the subjects covered include Chinatown stories, nativist reactions, exclusionism, citizenship, immigration, community growth, Asia American ethnicities, racial discourse and the Civil Rights movement, transnationalism, gender, refugees, anti-Asian American violence, legal battles, class polarization, and many more. Among the contributors are such noted scholars as Gary Okihiro, Michael Omi, Yen Le Espiritu, Lisa Lowe, and Ronald Takaki; writers such as Sui Sin Far, Bienvenido Santos, Sigrid Nunez, and R. Zamora Linmark, as well as younger, emerging scholars in the field.
