Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Ethnomusicological studies of cultural diasporas have centered mainly on communities of voluntary immigrants. Reyes (music, New Jersey City Univ.) here supports her view that the musical consequences of "forced migration" are unique by observing several groups of Vietnamese refugees in various stages of resettlement in the 1980s and early 1990s. She writes much about the sociopolitical and economic contexts for music-making in four locations (in the Philippines and the United States), concluding that anticommunism and deep nostalgia for pre-1975 Vietnam is reflected in the music of refugees to a greater extent than in the music of earlier (voluntary) Vietnamese immigrants to the United States. For academic collections specializing in migration studies.--Bonnie Jo Dopp, Univ. of Maryland Lib., College Park Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.
