Author(s): H. Denis Wu and Tien Tsung-Lee
Publish Date: May 2009
|Although there are books about Asian Americans and media or politics, there is likely the first and only in-depth investigation into both media and political issues facing this racial minority.|
Using a variety of qualitative and quantitative methods, this book examines racial attitudes toward Asian Americans, their media habits, how Asian American politicians are covered in the news media, and what election candidates and their campaign staffs think about their treatment by the press.
