 About the Book 

Cultural Writing. Photography. Essays. UNDER THE DRAGON is a fascinating look at the way individuals are building their own identities from an increasingly diverse pool, whether they are African American Buddhists, Latino Muslims, or a group of MienMoreCultural Writing. Photography. Essays. UNDER THE DRAGON is a fascinating look at the way individuals are building their own identities from an increasingly diverse pool, whether they are African American Buddhists, Latino Muslims, or a group of Mien students who invented their own cultural dance to celebrate their ethnic heritage. The old paradigm of the melting pot and phrases like ethnic diversity can no longer describe the freedom with which more and more Americans are modifying and assimilating cultural elements across ethnic lines. Ambitious and marvelously vibrant, UNDER THE DRAGON provides a captivating and astutely documented take on Californias changing cultural and ethnic intersections. It offers, by arresting photographic example, a fresh lesson in the things that divide and unite us all --Chandra Prasad.
