Leaving Deep Water: Asian American Women at the Crossroads of Two Cultures
Integrating ethnic identity with mainstream American culture is a complex task. In "Leaving Deep Water" Claire S. Chow deftly explores the many ways that women of Asian descent have forged a place for themselves in modern society. Drawing from the personal narratives of dozens of women from China, Japan, Korea, and other Asian countries, Chow analyzes such common themes as coming of age, parental expectations, marriage and divorce, career experiences, family relationships, and aging.
