The second edition of Unraveling the "Model Minority" Stereotype: Listening to Asian American Youth extends Stacey Lee's groundbreaking research on the educational experiences and achievement of Asian American youth. Lee provides a comprehensive update of social science research to reveal the ways in which the larger structures of race and class play out in the lives of Asian American high school students, especially regarding presumptions that the educational experiences of Koreans, Chinese, and Hmong youth are all largely the same. In her detailed and probing ethnography, Lee presents the experiences of these students in their own words, providing an authentic insider perspective on identity and interethnic relations in an often misunderstood American community. This second edition is essential reading for anyone interested in Asian American youth and their experiences in U.S. schools. Book jacket.

Lee critically examines how White folks in the US create stereotypes about Asian youth. She articulates what I see enacted all around me at school and with my children and their friends. Read full review
