9780820474939: Between Two Cultures: The Case of Cambodian Women in America

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.

From the Back Cover:

"Between Two Cultures is a major contribution to ethnic studies and is a skillful narrative that weaves analytical rigor to the telling of an intensely human story of refugees who are different from the mainstream and thus encounter problems of fitting in. Mitra Das is able to bring to life a complex subject through the vignettes of personal stories. The book introduces readers to the ‘journeys’ these people have made as they have traversed from their country of origin to their adopted homeland. This book does a beautiful job of presenting a holistic and symbiotic relationship between the new residents and the city that accepted them as a part of refugee settlement policy. It demonstrates that migrants to this land do not passively adopt and adapt to the host society but are also actively involved in their own settlement. This book is very informative and makes a valuable contribution to understanding the processes by which newcomers ‘in’ the society also attempt to become part ‘of’ it. It adds to the rich ethnic history of Lowell where Cambodian refugees are the principal actors. This is a ‘must read’ for anyone interested in learning about ‘Immigrant America’." Gowher Rizvi, Director, Ash Institute for Democratic Governance and Innovation, Kennedy School of Government, Harvard University
