In an academic’s world, penning a book is an accomplishment. Having said book nominated for an award, an even bigger win. Now imagine hearing that a book you wrote clinched its fourth award. That’s the case for sociologists Jennifer Lee,University of California, Irvine, and Min Zhou, UCLA, co-authors of The Asian American Achievement Paradox, which just earned the 2017 Association for Asian American Studies Award for Best Book in the Social Sciences.

The award-winning book debunks the myth that Asian American academic achievement can be reduced to unique cultural traits or values. Instead, Lee and Zhou find that U.S. immigration laws, American and ethnic institutions, and psychological factors foster high academic achievement among certain Asian American groups.

“We wrote The Asian American Achievement Paradox with a commitment to dispel misconceptions about the drivers of Asian American educational achievement, so to have our work acknowledged is especially meaningful,” says Lee. “We wanted to make a difference, and have an impact. Hopefully we've done that.“
