Cold War Politics and Asian Migrations to the United States

Lecture Description

This lecture discusses the waves of Asian migration to the US between the end of WWII and the passage of the 1964 Immigration Act that resulted from Cold War pressures in Asia. From changes in “war brides acts” to emergency asylum and parole policies the lecture notes the ways in which Asian migration changed greatly in this period as a precursor to the post-1965 immigration waves.
