I'm a little biased because I tend to get a little teary-eyed about the "good ol' revolutionary days" at the beginning of the "Asian American Movement," but here are some reflections from people involved.

I'm annoyed, as usual, that there's virtually no (4 pages on South Asians Against Police Brutality in NY doesn't count) documentation of radical and revolutionary South Asian American work - if no one writes about it, will it mean anything?

This is an important book to read because it sheds some light on the very underdocumented history of the Asian-American left since the sixties. For historical purposes it is fantastic. Many of the articles are hard to read, suffering from a didactic style reminiscent of, well, the sixties.
