The Case of Cambodian Women in America
©2007 Monographs 139 Pages
Between Two Cultures: The Case of Cambodian Women in America is a study of Cambodian (Khmer) refugee women who settled in Lowell, Massachusetts, a city known for its immigrant history. This study describes the «journeys» made and the challenges faced by these newcomers as they attempted resettlement in an environment very different from their home country. Simply and lucidly, Mitra Das gives us captivating insights and an understanding of the experiences of this group of refugees from «different shores.» In so doing, she brings to life the processes and conditions that are important for adaptation to American society. It can be a valuable source for understanding the dynamics of migration, ethnicity, and gender and can be used for those courses in sociology. People outside of academia working with refugee and immigrant groups will also find this book to be a valuable resource.
