Lien and Filler's Contesting the Last Frontier: Race, Gender, Ethnicity, and Political Representation of Asian Americans published by Oxford University Press

Lien and Filler examine the scope and significance of the rise of Asian Pacific Americans in US elective office over the past half-century, adopting an intersectionality framework that puts women of color at the center of their analysis. Ambitious and comprehensive, Contesting the Last Frontier fills an important gap in American electoral history and uncovers the lived experiences of APA women and men on the campaign trail and in elective office.
