Reviews

"Welaratna's book is a study in human persecution, courage, and survival that reaches well beyond Southeast Asia. . . . Through these stories of the survivors' ordeal and escape, Welaratna patiently explores the cultural, linguistic, and religious challenges Cambodian refugees face in this country and the long-term impact the violence and turmoil will likely have. There are no comparable texts . . . and Welaratna's work is sensitively written and well researched. Recommended for academic, public, and high school libraries."
