What is Asian American identity in a world where race is often defined by a Black and white binary? That’s the question Jay Caspian Kang seeks to answer with his thought-provoking book, The Loneliest Americans. To do this, Kang examines decades of Asian American history and immigration law, focusing particularly on the landmark 1965 Hart-Celler Act, which paved the way for a new wave of Asian immigration. Interspersing his reporting with his own family’s history, Kang offers a bracing look at extremely diverse Asian American communities today.
