Publisher's Comments

Straightjacket Sexualities is the first full-length study of the racialization of Asian American men in Hollywood and independent films from 1959-2009. It argues that the attribution of asexual, effeminate, and queer labels?indicating what these men lack?inadequately captures how Asian American men both wield power and experience its disciplining force.
