Asian/Pacific Islander American Women is the first collection devoted to the historical study of A/PI women's diverse experiences in America. Covering a broad terrain from pre-large scale Asian emigration and Hawaii in its pre-Western contact period to the continental United States, the Philippines, and Guam at the end of the twentieth century, the text views women as historical subjects actively negotiating complex hierarchies of power. The volume presents new findings about a range of groups, including recent immigrants to the U.S. and understudied communities. Comprised of original new work, it includes chapters on women who are Cambodian, Chamorro, Chinese, Filipino, Hmong, Japanese, Korean, Native Hawaiian, South Asian, and Vietnamese Americans. It addresses a wide range of women's experiences-as immigrants, military brides, refugees, American born, lesbians, workers, mothers, beauty contestants, and community activists. There are also pieces on historiography and methodology, and bibliographic and video documentary resources. This groundbreaking anthology is an important addition to the scholarship in Asian/Pacific American studies, ethnic studies, American studies, women's studies, and U.S. history, and is a valuable resource for scholars and students.

Barkan's analysis of contemporary Asian and Pacific Islander immigration to the United States offers an up-to-date synthesis of data about global migration today. It presents a series of principles regarding new double-step patterns in populations movements across a rimless world at the end of the 20th century. This unique study examines world migration theory, a fourth wave of immigration to the United States since the 1960s, factors that affect peoples' decisions to migrate, their adjustment to new communities and their impact on them, and their deliberations about returning to their original homelands.

This is a cruising guide with a difference. Many boaters may not be aware of the opportunities for walks accessible from anchorages along the B.C. coast. For those who cruise with dogs aboard, and for those who like to venture ashore to stretch their legs, the book is illustrated with charming maps describing walks up and down the coast. Framed by the author's many years of cruising on a beautiful wooden sailboat along with her husband and two dogs, it tells tales of mishaps, adventures, explorations and glorious days on the water. The book is set against the stunning backdrop of the waters, mountains and islands between the B.C. mainland and Vancouver Island. If you are an experienced sailor with extensive knowledge of the B.C. Coast, are new to boating, or even a confirmed landlubber and armchair sailor, you will love this book. It is a "must have" in every boat's cruising library.

As revealed in her diary, Maximilienne Carpentier is one of the most elusive and enigmatic figures of recent European history. Who was this strange woman? Where is the island she speaks of? Can we believe that she did away with her enemies as she describes? Was her father really a convicted criminal, her aunt a murderess, and her cousin a suicide? Who is the mysterious Claude Besson, her apparent help in time of trouble? What of the Royal Title she alludes to, or her claim that Charles VII of France ratified this valuable document? Although some details linger obstinately in the caprice of nineteenth-century political turmoil, the Carpentier diary nevertheless remains a fascinating document.

In 2155 there are two Americas: one for the wealthy and one for the poor. The wealthy control most of the land and all the technology, while the poor lead short and squalid lives confined to the remnants of America's collapsed cities, known as Islands. The two cultures collide when Galen Fairchild, a young Islander, falls in love with Mata Vandermere, the daughter of a prosperous family from the modern city of Stratis. Like Romeo and Juliet, Galen and Mata struggle to stay together in the face of daunting opposition from family, friends, and many other forces. Their troubles finally lead them into the ghostlike ruins of downtown Minneapolis, where no Islander dares to go. Inside the crumbling skyscrapers, they discover a strange power linked to Galen's past, which not only changes his life forever, but also pits the two cultures against each other with cataclysmic results. --From author's website.
