Blurb/Shorttext:
Dr. Moses Haregewoyn has achieved what few others have, an intimate look into the lives of a refugee immigrant population of postmodern America. Focusing on a major capitol city in the Midwest, he illuminates the triumphs and tragedies of Ethiopians who fled from Communism. The role of their Coptic Church, the oldest Christian denomination in the world, is vital. The study shows the difference between generations in assimilating to the work, schools, economy, and the environment. Conducted by in-depth interviews, the study lets the people speak in their own voices, adding drama and pathos to this valuable book. This ethnographic study tells the direct, personal narratives of those who escaped the brutal Communist takeover of their homeland. This book is essential for students of religious studies, political science, and sociology, as well as for practitioners working with immigrant populations. Jane Piirto, Ph.D., author and Trustees'' Distinguished Professor, Ashland University.
