This text explores international immigration, especially the flight and resettlement of refugees, with particular reference to Vietnam's "boat people". The author had close connections with a number of prominent people and agencies dealing with the problem. His work is also concerned with some more general problems of race relations, particularly those involving Asian groups in America and the conflict between Jews and African-Americans in the inner city.show more
