Abstract and Keywords

The essay argues that despite the relative marginality of intellectual history as an acknowledged methodological approach in Asian American studies that such an approach has been an important feature of Asian American historical writing. This survey of various historical works in the field shows that intellectual history encompasses diverse ethnic, racial, gender, sexual, class, and national experiences. And it likewise points to a closer understanding of transnational developments, especially in anticolonial politics .

Keywords: intellectuals, anticolonialism, bridge of understanding, double consciousness
