The Semblance of Identity was published by Stanford University Press and authored by Christopher Lee. You may purchase this book from Amazon. The following paragraph is a brief description of the book.
“The history of Asian American literature reveals the ongoing attempt to work through the fraught relationship between identity politics and literary representation. This relationship is especially evident in literary works which claim that their content represents the socio-historical world. The Semblance of Identityargues that the reframing of the field as a critical, rather than identity-based, project nonetheless continues to rely on the logics of identity.”
