Beyond Asian American Poverty: Community Economic Development Policies and Strategies

The result of a year long study by researchers at UCLA’s Urban Planning Program, Beyond Asian American Poverty focuses on the needs and conditions of “invisible” Asian Americans – the working poor, the unemployed and those dependent on welfare. Using data gathered from these Asian American communities in Los Angeles, the book provides invaluable documentation of the obstacles facing this population as well as a framework to guide community economic development efforts in other cities. Its recommendations will challenge existing policies and enlighten the discussion on Asian Americans and their role in revitalizing America’s inner cities.
