New Immigrant Literatures in the United States: A Sourcebook to Our Multicultural Literary Heritage

Synopsis

During the last 50 years, writers from immigrant groups have greatly enriched American literature. This reference overviews immigrant literatures in the United States since World War II. Previously underrepresented immigrant literatures, such as Pakistani-American, Korean-American, and Mexican-American literatures, are given special attention, and contributors discuss women's writing whenever possible. Each chapter provides a thorough historical and critical discussion and extensive bibliographical information.
