Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Gr. 5^-7. Libraries needing materials on architects or conductors may want to consider purchasing these slim volumes in the Contemporary Asian Americans series, which concentrate on their subjects' professional achievements rather than their personal lives. Ling discusses the controversy surrounding the selection of Maya Lin's design for the Vietnam War Memorial in Washington, D.C., and also describes several other important projects Lin designed. Besides listing achievements, Tan's profile points out the difficulties Ozawa faced in Japan because of his desire to study and conduct Western classical music. Pronunciation guidance in the volume is uneven. Black-and-white and color photographs, a chronology, glossary, and brief bibliography are included in each book. --Chris Sherman"
