Focusing on race, culture, acculturation, ethnicity, and ethnic identity concepts commonly used to account for the behaviors of Asian Americans and other minorities A Postmodern Psychology of Asian Americans examines the effects of modern psychology s epistemological and ontological premises on its investigative methods and concepts. Author Laura Uba looks at the social creation of psychological facts, including portrayals of ethnic and racial groups, and demonstrates, especially in ways pertinent to the study of minorities, that modern psychology needs to reconsider its ways of thinking about study samples, investigative methods, facts, and concepts used to describe and explain behaviors."
