The Hmong: An Annotated Bibliography, 1983-1987. Southeast Asian Refugee Studies Occasional Papers Number Seven.
Smith, J. Christina, Comp.
The Hmong are a preliterate Southeast Asian tribe in the remote highlands of Vietnam, Thailand, and Laos. During the 1960s and 1970s, the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) recruited many Hmong to fight rebel forces in Indochina. Losing to the Pathet Lao in 1975, the Hmong were forced to flee Communist-controlled Laos. The United States accepted more than 60,000 Hmong refugees between 1975 and 1986. As of April 1985, 34,700 Hmong, including their American-born children, live in California. This 318-item annotated bibliography is a compilation of printed and audiovisual materials on the Hmong published or produced between 1983 and mid-1987. The main focus is Hmong resettlement in the United States, but material has been included on the Hmong in Southeast Asia and China. The principal language focus is English, but English-Hmong bilingual material is included. Topical divisions are the following: (1) Bibliographies; (2) Ethnography; (3) Linguistics; (4) Refugees/Resettlement Issues; (5) Physical and Mental Health; (6) Bilingual Materials; (7) Audiovisual Materials; and (8) Sources (a list of addresses of organizations that produce materials on Hmong/Southeast Asians, or that engage in refugee advocacy). An index of authors is provided. (FMW)
