With the steady increase in the number of Asian immigrants, our
interest in Asian-American communities has intensified in recent
years. While much has been written on the experiences of
established immigrant communities such as the Chinese and the
Japanese, little is yet known about the Korean Americans, one of
today's fastest growing Asian-American minorities. This volume
provides an overview of the history of Korean immigration to this
country--from the first immigrants who arrived in Hawaii at the
beginning of the century to the most recent waves of the 1980s and
1990s--and a detailed analysis of the main problems Korean
Americans face in adjusting to life in their adopted country. The
author collected most of his data through a questionnaire survey
and case-study interviews, which provide lively, first-person
accounts of the immigrant experience, focusing in particular on
problems such as the language barrier, social isolation, family
tension, and the challenge of earning a livelihood.
