Timely and Illuminating2018年1月2日にアメリカ合衆国でレビュー済み
In today's xenophobic times, this is a timely work that attempts to humanize and illustrate the diversity of experience of refugees in America. It blends oral histories from the refugees themselves with synopses of both the conflicts they have come from and the challenges they face once they get here. It includes stories from refugees from places as diverse as Burma, Bhutan and Vietnam; Congo, Somalia and Ethiopia; Syria and Afghanistan. This book is broadening, educational and compelling.
An Excellent Perspective on Refugees2018年1月7日にアメリカ合衆国でレビュー済み
Tempest-tost, by Robert Dodge, is an excellent book. I particularly appreciated how the author included personal, touching stories from the refugees he interviewed, then put those stories in the context of the countries from which they fled. Right now in the US, there is a lot of discussion about refugees and immigrants (the author does a nice job of differentiating between these), and this book is the best analysis I’ve seen of the situations faced by refugees to the US from a wide variety of countries. The stories are sometimes heartbreaking, but there is an optimistic tone to the book. Although I don’t live in the Denver area which is the home of the refugees interviewed, it seems that they have found a way to support each other and to get helpful social services. I hope this is true in other communities. I highly recommend this book to both casual and scholarly readers.
