Asian Americans are proportionally the fastest growing ethnic group in the United States. Since the early 1970s, Asian American psychology has been an emerging field, with an increasingly complex and sophisticated research base. This volume offers a framework for the conceptual and methodological development of Asian American psychology and provides future research directions by experts in the field. The book demonstrates that Asian American are a heterogeneous group that must be understood in context, with multiple racial, ethnic, gender and cultural identities. Conceptual and methodological models highlighted in this work contribute parallel advances not only in the psychological studies of ethnic minority groups but in the psychological research of an increasingly multicultural and increasingly global American population.
