Authors: Daniel Schwekendiek (University of California, Berkeley, CA) 
Book Description:
This book represents the first meta-analysis of living standards of Koreans in the West by primarily drawing from a number of comprehensive statistical and ethnographic surveys recently conducted among Korean migrants and Korean adoptees. Introductions to human welfare concepts and the emergence of Asian stereotypes are presented in addition to the historical overview of Korean migration. Also discussed are statistical indications of Korean diaspora around the globe. Most importantly, the major aspects of life for Korean diaspora in the wealthy West are compellingly explored, including its demographic, social, economic, political, religious, educational, linguistic, physical, psychological and cultural states are analyzed. The two primary destinations in the Western Hemisphere used for reference are the United States and Germany. (Imprint: Nova)
