Read for research/interest. Interesting overview of the history, culture and traditions of the Hmong. I liked that it covered communities in different places (not just US and Laos, but also China, Vietnam, Thailand and Australia) and talked about how cultural customs have changed over time, and about contemporary culture, e.g. Hmong websites and so on. I definitely think more academic books about non-Western cultures would benefit from having a member of the actual community co-writing the book.

I read this book for my Hmong Culture class in college. It has a lot of information about the Hmong and their culture and it is written in a way that isn't dry or boring. Lee and Tap did a great job describing the Hmong culture. By far one of the better "textbooks" I have had to read for class.
