Would you consider the audio edition of The Making of Asian America to be better than the print version?
No, narration is poor and disengaging. I own the print copy and will likely switch over to reading rather than listening.
What was one of the most memorable moments of The Making of Asian America?
This book is important - it's content is often relegated to Asian American Studies and Lee's synthesis is well done. Great primer to Asian American history and a more diverse view of American history.
What didn’t you like about Emily Woo Zeller’s performance?
She sounds like a robot and there are odd, staccato pauses throughout that break the flow.

So very good. Well sourced. I highly recommend reading it, especially through this 2016 election season. Very similar debates have been had throughout US history about who has a right to be American. And it is interesting how the line divided between those who think being American is an exclusive right for just a few and those who see American values as inclusive for all who want to adopt them--nationalists vs. globalists. Also captured are beautiful stories of beautifully diverse peoples. I had no idea how much history I share as an Africa American with Asian Americans. I am saddened by how they have been and still are treated in America, but I am also greatly encouraged by their triumphs. Wonderful, wonderful book.
