"This groundbreaking book peers deeply into the lives and lifestyle of an overlooked new-member of American society providing the reader with understandings compiled in no other document." Asia Week. "Compelling. This new work by author Scott Shaw details the trials and the tribulations of newly arrived Cambodian immigrants and their quest to find assimilation in U.S. Society." Publishers Weekly. Cambodia was in a state of political and cultural upheaval from the late 1950s through the early 1990s. This was epitomized by the political reign of terror brought on by Pol Pot, the leader of the Khmer Rouge, as he seized power in 1975. His attempt to create a completely agrarian society left the country in chaos and an estimated three million Cambodians dead. With the inception of his brutal rule, Cambodians began to seek sanctuary in less hostile environments. With this, many left their native land and entered the United States as refugees. This movement to America has had one city as a focal point, Long Beach, California. By the late 1980s there were an estimated thirty-five thousand Cambodians living within this cities boundaries. This is a groundbreaking book on the subject, chronicling their plight. This book is unique in that it was the first text to study the lives and the lifestyles of the Cambodian Refugees living in Long Beach, California. In order to present insight into their struggles, their change of lifestyle, and their assimilation patterns, the author interviewed one-hundred Long Beach, California based Cambodians refugees in 1986. In 1989, the author interviewed an additional one-thousand refugees. From these interviews, the author was able to comprise statistics and detail a presentation of the Cambodia refugee experience, based upon their own definitions and understandings of living life in the United States.
