Synopsis

Student Almanac of Asian American History by Media Projects Incorporated

When Asians began to immigrate to the United States in the 1800s, they met with both gratitude for the labor they provided and mistrust for their culture, which was unfamiliar to Americans. This two-volume set traces the turbulent history of Asian Americans from their first arrival to the present day. After an introduction to each chapter, A-Z entries identify people, places, events, and terms to give a complete picture to students researching all aspects of Asian American history. Volume 1: From Gold Mountain to Picture Brides, 1848-1924 Volume 2: From the Exclusion Era to Today, 1925-Present 6th-8th Grade

Reviews

?The short essays are engaging and are appropriately written for a middle school audience, incorporating enough detail to satisfy most report-writing requirements without drowning students in arcana....Each volume includes a comprehensive index, a volume-specific glossary, impressive lists of further resources in a variety of media, and an extensive bibliography. The black and white illustrations are crisply rendered and include historical photographs, political cartoons, and reprints of Asian language newspapers. There is genuinely useful and interesting information here.?-VOYA
