Buddha Is Hiding: Refugees, Citizenship, the New America

Buddha Is Hiding: Refugees, Citizenship, the New America by Aihwa Ong
English | Sep. 4, 2003 | ISBN: 0520229983, 0520238249 | 352 Pages | PDF | 1 MB

Buddha Is Hiding tells the story of Cambodian Americans experiencing American citizenship from the bottom-up. Based on extensive fieldwork in Oakland and San Francisco, the study puts a human face on how American institutions-of health, welfare, law, police, church, and industry-affect minority citizens as they negotiate American culture and re-interpret the American dream.
Fleeing the murderous Pol Pot regime, Cambodian refugees arrive in America as at once the victims and the heroes of America's misadventures in Southeast Asia; and their encounters with American citizenship are contradictory as well.
