From the Back Cover:

'This work accomplishes precisely what its editors tell us they intend to do. We hear clearly the unedited voices of the refugees. They share with us their experiences, hopes, fears, bloody nightmares, and dreams. The telling is poignant. Each essay evokes an intensely emotional response. Each educates...In sum, the book is a stunning, moving descriptive ethnography.'--American Ethnologist

About the Author:

Joel Halpern is Professor Emeritus of Anthropology at the University of Massachusetts Amherst. His previous books include A Serbian Village in Historical Perspective, The Changing Village Community, The Changing Peasantry of Eastern Europe, and The Far East Comes Near.
