Summary:Examines the lives of urban Korean Americans who seek to retain their traditional cultural values while adjusting to life in the U.S. Explores why Korean Americans have frequently come into violent conflict with inner-city African Americans, and how they have sought, through their own ethnic civic organizations, to overcome the perceived rejection of the community around them.
