Over three decades have passed since the first wave of Indochinese refugees left their homelands. These refugees, mainly the Vietnamese, fled from war and strife in search of a better life elsewhere. By investigating the Vietnamese diaspora in Asia, this book sheds new light on the Asian refugee era (1975-1991), refugee settlement and different patterns of host-guest interactions that will have implications for refugee studies elsewhere. The book provides:

a clearer historical understanding of the group dynamics among refugees - the ethnic Chinese `Vietnamese refugees' from both the North and South as well as the northern `Vietnamese refugees'

an examination of different aspects of migration including: planning for migration, choices of migration route, and reasons for migration

an analysis of the ethnic and refugee politics during the refugee era, the settlement and subsequent resettlement.

This book will be of interest to students and scholars of globalization, migration, ethnicities, refugee histories and politics.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"[T]his book is an excellent contribution to the field. It deepens and enlarges our understanding of the Vietnamese refugee exodus and of Asian refugee migrations generally. It also demonstrates with keen insight and sensitivity the extent to which refugee experience has shaped and continues to inform the lives and identities of multiple generations within the global Vietnamese diaspora." - Glen Peterson, University of British Columbia; Journal of Chinese Overseas 8 (2012) 123-132

"This book is a welcome addition to the work on the Vietnam-born people who escaped after 1975, by focusing just on those who left through Hong Kong. It provides a view into the world of Hong Kong refugees and sees their experience as part of a continuum of refugee experience... the book effectively indicates that the flow of people out of a country after a crisis is not even just the beginning of the story of migration." - Mandy Thomas, Australian National University; Asian Anthropology
