Migration of Hmong to the Midwestern United States emphasizes the value of qualitative research into the trans-cultural practice of the newest refugee group to the Midwestern United States, the Hmong refugees from Laos, China, Vietnam, and Thailand. The author examines how multigenerational Hmong families are adjusting and adapting to life in Rochester, Minnesota. Qualitative interviewing through in-depth individual interviews and participant observation was the method of data collection. In Migration of Hmong the reader will find that the Hmong subjects interviewed for this study show a high degree of discrepancy between the acculturation levels based on age and country of origin.

Editorial Reviews

Hosea L. Perry
Dr. Faruque's conclusions are enlightening, and she offers significant recommendations for further study of the Hmong refugees. The research study presented in this text is a valuable addition to the body of literature on the subject of Hmong immigration to the United States; it provides a base knowledge needed for responding to the needs of the Hmong people and for empowering them to become active participants in the greater community.
