"Sumptuously illustrated ... A nice addition to most public and academic library collections on Korean history, culture, literature, and art" --Library Journal, 15 March 2003

"Remarkable" --AsianWeek, 24 January 2003 (Read full review)

"Beautiful. Century of the Tiger is a stunning accomplishment that interweaves history, politics, art, and poetry to create a vivid tapestry of Korean American culture and sensibility. The writers and artists represented in this anthology have poured the pain and beauty of the Korean American experience onto the page, infusing this collection with grace and insight." --Nora Okja Keller, author of Fox Girl and Comfort Woman

"Century of the Tiger seems to have struck a deep, emotional cord within the heart of the Korean American community." --Korean Quarterly, Spring 2003

"While it may have great utility as a coffee table adornment, I expect that it will also find itself becoming a required reading assignment in courses on Korean American history" --Korean Studies 26 (2002)
