A massive wave of immigration is currently sweeping across the US. How do new immigrants, specifically the Hmong refugees from Laos, assimilate?
This book first traces the stages of the Hmong refugee experience and then looks at how Hmong families are adjusting and adapting to their new lives in America. From a family-centered focus, the reader gains an appreciation for how the Hmong see their own adaptational process and how they represent and define their Hmongness in America. Sociologists and anthropologists. Part of the New Immigrants Series.
