I am a senior at Birmingham High School. I, along with my parents and sister, emigrated to the United States from Taiwan when I was 4 years old.

The stories in this exceptional anthology suggest that the transition from traditional Chinese culture to Marxism has done little to improve the status of women.

P ut an End to Media Hype , No More Racist Stereotypes . Such was a typical chant at Mann's Chinese Theater on Friday night, where more than 100 demonstrators congregated to picket "Year of the Dragon."

For recent Asian immigrants and longtime Asian-Americans lining the streets of Alhambra and Monterey Park on Saturday, the first Chinese New Year parade to pass through both cities was much more than just an excuse to party.
