Laotians in the San Francisco Bay Area (Images of America) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Throughout the 19th and up to the mid-20th centuries, immigrants from China, Japan, Korea, India, and the Philippines came to America through San Francisco. The end of the decades-long Vietnam War changed the modern Asian American demographics of the city, this time with refugees coming from Vietnam, Cambodia, and Laos. The San Francisco Bay Area remains a hub for Laotian American culture, history, and community resources, and it has been a center for Laotian American advancement since the early 1980s. After calling the United States home for more than 30 years and battling the scars of war, a new Laotian American society is seeking meaning from its past while moving forward with hopes of a better future as Americans.

About the Author

Jonathan H.X. Lee is an assistant professor of Asian American studies at San Francisco State University (SFSU). He holds a doctorate degree in religious studies and has published widely on Chinese, Cambodian, Vietnamese, and Chinese-Southeast Asian American histories, folklore, cultures, and religions. Lee collaborated with the Center for Lao Studies and members of the Laotian American communities to write Images of America: Laotians of the San Francisco Bay Area. Images came from Laotian American community leaders, families, businesses, organizations, associations, churches, temples, and students majoring in Asian American studies at SFSU.
