These two posts on anti-Asian dystopia are great!

In a class I teach on race and ethnicity in American culture, I have used London's The Unparallelled Invasion a few times, and I often use Gordon Chang's article "Eternally Foreign," which reviews some of the yellow peril novels discussed here. Exciting articles like these would really keep students' attention alongside those other more time-consuming texts. I love the Buck Rogers part--I watched some of that as a kid but of course in the most clueless way.
