Reviews - What do customers think about Legacy to Liberation: Politics & Culture of Revolutionary Asian/Pacific America?

a hers and his story of revolutionary spirit  Aug 14, 2000
When I first picked up this book, I was very skeptical. I was afraid that it would be another informative yet jargon filled account of Asian Americans in the political sphere. I was pleasantly surprised to discover that the contributors in this anthology are activists. They passionately discussed issues ranging from U.S. political prisoners to campus activism and revolutionary acts through the arts. They also revealed their commitment to a life of activism and improving the world we live in.

There have been several noteworthy books about Asian American activism such as The State of Asian America: Activism and Resistance in the 1990's. Yet, the first person accounts of sacrifice, commitment and struggle distinguish Legacy to Liberation from the rest. Grassroots organizing and participation is more than a theory to these writers but a way of life. Their stories are refreshing, inspiring and humanistic.

This is a great book for anyone who wants to know how Asian Americans have worked for social justice and liberation both locally and globally.
