Treatments of Vietnamese history in American schools are usually limited to the Vietnam War. This book explains the reasons members of the Vietnamese community migrated to a country that conducted a great deal of violence against their people. It explains how they survived a hostile labor market when many did not speak the language, and how they built a cultural identity that preserved their heritage while allowing them to assimilate. Readers will discover the history of the descendants of an ancient and prominent civilization on their journey to become one of the pillars of American society. This volume is essential for creating globally aware citizens.
