Books -- Reviews, Asian Americans -- California -- Monterey Park, Hispanic Americans -- California -- Monterey Park, Whites -- California -- Monterey Park


In this review of Race and Politics: Asian Americans, Latinos, and Whites in a Los Angeles Suburb by Leland Saito, I discuss and analyze Saito’s argument, and his use of supporting evidence. I also discuss the fit between the argument and evidence, as well as the strengths and weaknesses of his sources, methods, and interpretation. In doing so, I situate Saito’s work into context with similar works examining the relationship between spatial practices and racial formation.
