Asian and Asian American Experiences

by Melanie E.L. Bush & Roderick D. Bush

[June 1, 2007]
 

 

Events at the turn of the twenty-first century have led to heightened contestation about the meaning and parameters of U.S. nationalism, patriotism and loyalty.  This is not merely a philosophical or cultural issue, it is a question about the future of the world system and the U.S. role in it.  This presentation will engage this question historically and currently in it its particular relevancy to Asian and Asian American communities in the United States suggesting that there are and have always been "Tensions in the 'American' Dream".
