Portraits of Pride II: Chinese-American Legacies--First 160 Years in America will soon be published under the directorship of Mr. L.P. Leung, a retired, certified public accountant. The biographical stories and achievements of those individuals profiled - such as architect, Maya Lin; classical cellist, Yo-Yo-Ma; French Open tennis champion, Michael Chang; Prozac developer, David T. Wong; eight Chinese-American Nobel laureates; and many other distinguished Chinese American men and women, will be inspirations to middle school, high school and university students. In extended monographs, the new volume also takes a broad view and fresh look at Chinese Americans' successes in agriculture, education, fishing, technology and transportation. Stories are told in three sections: Group Portraits, Unsung Heroes, and Superstars and the book contains detailed appendices. In addition, the entire work is contained on a fully-searchable, compact disc enclosed at the back of the book. Illustrated with 86 mostly-color photographs, the book will be sought after for homes, schools and libraries and bring pride to Chinese Americans and their friends.
