According to Amazon.com, UW-Madison Education Professor Stacey J.
Lee's new book Up Against Whiteness: Race, School, And Immigrant
Youth (Teachers College Press) should be available by May 1, 2005.
We will be quick to get a copy for the Hmong Resource Center in
Saint Paul. Over the past few years, Professor Lee has put out some
very interesting work looking at gender issues among Hmong-American
Youth (female AND male, most existing work only looks at females).
She has also explored the experiences of Hmong students in schools
in Wisconsin from a race relations perspective.
