  • Asian Americans The Model Minority
    648 words
    The author, Ronald Takaki, wishes to illustrate that the perceptions of Asian Americans as a 'model minority' are not entirely accurate. Takaki writes that the facts and figures used to compare Asian-Americans to other, less successful minority groups are misleading. For example, the author writes that although Japanese Americans are seen as upwardly mobile, they have not yet achieved equality. The essay states that 'while Japanese American men in California earned an average income comparable t...
  • Half American As E.P. Thompson
    786 words
    "Letter to Americans" by E.P. Thompson Dated back in 1986, "Letter to Americans" is as if it's written in the last three-four years. In it E.P.

    1,158 words

The Road to McCarthy is ostensibly a hunt for Irish McCarthys, all the way from Morocco, New York and Tasmania to Montana and Montserrat; but it reads less like a comic tour of the world than a tour of the world for the sake of being comic about it. Which, to be sure, the book frequentl...
