[good clean copy, slight bends to top corners of both covers; text unmarked in any way]. Trade PB (B&W photographs) This examination of the depiction of Asians and interracial sexuality in Hollywood films shows "how fantasy-dramas of interracial rape, lynching, tragic love, and model marriage are powerfully evident in American cinema. [She] brings the theoretical perspective of recent writing on race, ethnicity, and gender to her analyses of film and television and argues persuasively that these media help to perpetuate social and racial inequality in America. Her book will be certain to interest readers in film, Asian, women's, and cultural studies."
