Crossing East -- Asian American History SeriesAudio currently not available for this program.
Wars create poverty conditions and a surplus of dispossessed women and children. In the past 50 years, many Asian women have married American service men and many Asian children have been adopted and sent to the U.S. The program focuses on Asian immigrants who immediately become part of an American family -- women from Japan, Vietnam, and Korea married to American servicemen and children adopted from Korea, Vietnam, and China.
