Edited by Ieva Zake, newly published Anti-Communist Minorities in the U.S., Political Activism of Ethnic Refugees references materials in the IHRC and presents the little known history of anti-Communism and the Cold War in the U.S. from the point of view of émigrés from Eastern and Central Europe, Asia, and Cuba.
To these minorities, anti-Communism was and still is a crucial part of their ethnic identity and a resource for mobilizing the community. Through compelling case studies, we learn why these minorities have persisted in their anti-Communist struggles, and what have been the successes and failures of their activism. The book also introduces a useful comparative framework for understanding the uniqueness of the political refugees' experience. More information and order form.
