Summary
In Racial Ambiguity in Asian American Culture, Jennifer Ann Ho shines a light on the hybrid and indeterminate aspects of race, revealing ambiguity to be paramount to a more nuanced understanding both of race and of what it means to be Asian American. Exploring a variety of subjects and cultural artifacts, Ho reveals how Asian American subjects evince a deep racial ambiguity that unmoors the concept of race from any fixed or finite understanding. She argues that race is an abstraction that we treat as concrete, a construct that reflects only our desires, fears, and anxieties, and seeing race as ambiguous puts us one step closer to a potential antidote to racism.--From publisher description
