Immigrants and refugees from 15 countries tell of their lives in and adjustments to the US-in a flawed collection of oral histories. Stories of war, resistance, violent death, and torture come from refugees fleeing Afghanistan, Ethiopia, Guatemala, Vietnam, Cambodia, and Laos. But sufficient context is often lacking.
