Blurb/Shorttext:
Drawing on recent developments in theories of race, gender, sexuality, identity and nation, this book is a study of interracial desire as a theme in literary texts by Asian American male writers. An important part of this project is the centrality of race and sexuality in the context of U.S. citizenship and national identity. Throughout this book the author seeks to answer these questions: How have the concepts of race, gender, and sexuality been incorporated into the definition of American identity and the granting of American citizenship? What are the strategies Asian American male writers have employed to assert their masculinity and national membership? This literary study not only gives marginalized Asian American men an opportunity to express their own perspectives on issues of race, gender, sexuality, and identity, but it also seeks to discover a pro-feminist masculinity as an alternative to the traditional violent and misogynist stance of (Asian) American manhood.
