As the field of Asian American studies grows, there is a need to understand smaller and more recent immigrant communities. Emerging Voices presents a unique and compelling discussion of underrepresented groups, including Burmese, Indonesian, Mong, Hmong, Nepalese, Romani, Tibetan, and Thai Americans.
In this book, there are three chapters about Hmong Americans written by Paoze Thao, Chimeng Yang, and Kou Yang.
This book, which begins to understand the experiences of 'underrepresented' minorities, is long overdue. Emerging Voices meets an important need and fills a significant gap in the field of Asian American studies.

A unique project that broadens our understanding of diversity and promises to bring new Asian American groups into focus in a valuable way.
