Vietnamese Americans

Written by Liz Sonneborn

Vietnamese Americans Synopsis

With the sudden end of the Vietnam War in April 1975, throngs of Vietnamese fled their country. Within months, more than 130,000 arrived in the United States, determined to begin their lives anew. In the three decades since that time, Vietnamese Americans have faced many struggles - from finding jobs and learning English to coping with the physical and emotional scars of war. Despite these hardships, many have distinguished themselves, especially as students and entrepreneurs. Here is an all-in-one place to begin a study of this vital segment of the American population. Vietnamese Americans incorporates a lively text and high-quality, full-color photographs. Fact boxes, sidebars, information on genealogy, and other features add scope, making this useful for reports and general interest.
