Asian/Pacific Islander American Women is the first collection devoted to the historical study of A/PI women's diverse experiences in America. Covering a broad terrain from pre-large scale Asian emigration and Hawaii in its pre-Western contact period to the continental United States, the Philippines, and Guam at the end of the twentieth century, the text views women as historical subjects actively negotiating complex hierarchies of power.
The volume presents new findings about a range of groups, including recent immigrants to the U.S. and understudied communities. Comprised of original new work, it includes chapters on women who are Cambodian, Chamorro, Chinese, Filipino, Hmong, Japanese, Korean, Native Hawaiian, South Asian, and Vietnamese Americans. It addresses a wide range of women's experiences-as immigrants, military brides, refugees, American born, lesbians, workers, mothers, beauty contestants, and community activists. There are also pieces on historiography and methodology, and bibliographic and video documentary resources.
This groundbreaking anthology is an important addition to the scholarship in Asian/Pacific American studies, ethnic studies, American studies, women's studies, and U.S. history, and is a valuable resource for scholars and students.

A good humored fast read about the history of Florida from the time of Columbus through the Steamboat era on the St. Johns River at the end of the 19th century. The history is confined to the area around the St. Johns River and Drayton Island in particular. For centuries before the European's arrived, the native people lived along the river and on Drayton Island. As the area near St. Augustine and along the coast of the Atlantic Ocean became settled, the Indians moved inland. The Island was on the frontier between the settlers and the Indians. South of Drayton Island, the settlers were on the east side of the river and the Indians were on the west side. The book touches on the French, Spanish, and English control of the Florida peninsula, the Florida Territory of the United States, Statehood and Secession, the Civil War, Trail of Tears, and the plight of the freed African American slaves. There are hundreds of books about the history of Florida that do not have interviews and stories about the people. This book has several. It is fiction based upon the Florida history soap opera.
