Performing Asian America: Race and Ethnicity on the Contemporary Stage by Josephine D. LeeBy looking at performances and dramatic texts, Lee argues that playwrights produce a different conception of Asian America in accordance with their unique set of sensibilities. Some Asian American playwrights critique the separation of issues of race and ethnicity from those of economics and class, or they see ethnic identity as a voluntary choice of lifestyle rather than an impetus for concerted political action. Others deal with the problem of cultural stereotypes. Discussed are better-known plays such as Frank Chin's "The Chickencoop Chinaman," David Henry Hwang's "M. Butterfly," and Velina Hasu Houston's "Tea," and new works like Jeannie Barroga's "Walls" and Wakako Yamauchi's "12-1-a.""
