Explorations in Sights and Sounds
Since the fall of Saigon in 1975, over three-quarters of a million Indochinese refugees have come to the United States. Numerous studies have been conducted on their adjustment to American society and on resettlement policies and programs. This book covers these very topics and is organized into three sections. The first part provides some background on the cultures and political histories of the major Indochinese groups and on federal and state policies and programs. The second investigates problems experienced by the Indochinese, particularly with regard to their health, education, language abilities, and employment and is based on a 1981 needs assessment survey of refugees in the San Diego area. The third section of the book presents policy recommendations.
