Offers a glimpse into the hearts and minds of Vietnamese-American women and their roles in their community. Conflict is generated by the existence of competing traditions, and this text focuses on the conflict between Confucianism and romanticism in the Vietnamese tradition. The book also utilizes insights developed in postmodern analytical circles to explain the community's seemingly contradictory reliance on opposing traditions. The study avoids the simplistic patriarchal focus, recognising that the community is much more pluralistic and complex: rather, it is a library of conflicting texts about gender, romance, and religion.
