Ethnic origins: the adaptation of Cambodian and Hmong refugees in four American cities

Investigates the role of religion, family, and other cultural factors on immigrant incorporation into American society by comparing the experiences of two immigrant groups living in four different American cities not commonly regarded as immigrant gateways. Hein provides an in-depth look at Hmong and Khmer refugees and compares their experience in two small towns--Rochester, Minnesota and Eau Claire, Wisconsin--and in two big cities--Chicago and Milwaukee--and examines how each group adjusted to these different settings. - from publisher description.
