This book studies Korean immigrants in New York and how they have maintained traditional family values since coming to the U.S. and the ways in which these values have changed. The increased economic role of women is discussed in-depth, as well as how this new role has affected marital relations, the socialization of children, and family ties. Part of the New Immigrants Series, edited by Nancy Foner. Focusing on the massive wave of immigration currently sweeping across America, this groundbreaking series includes coverage of five new immigrant groups for 1998: the Hmong in Wisconsin, Brazilians and Koreans in New York City, Haitians in Miami, and Chinese in San Francisco. This series fills the gap in knowledge relating to today's immigrants, how these groups are attempting to redefine their cultures while here, and their contribution to a new and changing America.
