Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:
Blue Dreams shows how Korean Americans, variously depicted as immigrant seekers after the American dream or as racist merchants exploiting African Americans, emerged at the crossroads of conflicting social reflections in the aftermath of the 1992 riots in Los Angeles.

Review:
"'Blue Dreams'--a poetic allusion to the clear blue sky that Koreans see as a symbol of freedom--is a welcome exploration by outsiders into the vexing and largely invisible Korean-American predicament in Los Angeles and the nation. Their colorful interview subjects offer sharp observations...Abelmann and Lie are at their best when they debunk the notion that Korean-American enterprise has been a 'success story' and when they probe the transnational roots and cultural diversity of L. A.'s Korean-American settlements."

K.W. Lee, Los Angeles Times
