Description

Canniff's work makes explicit the Buddist values that inspire Cambodian adults and adolescents to be successful individuals within their families, their culture, and the larger American society. Her evidence is based on her relationship with a Cambodian community in a New England city and consists of narrative accounts and participant observation over a nine-year period. The findings support the research on immigrants which maintains that individuals who sustain strong cultural identity, while adding pragmatic strategies for getting ahead in American society, are consistently the most successful.
