Abstract:

The assessment of an emigre family from the former Soviet Union must be multifaceted, including political, socioeconomic, and cultural factors. A purely psychological approach, which describes emigre behaviors as pathological in contrast to American norms, yields a biased assessment. This article presents the many factors, operating on both the macro and micro levels, that must be included in a comprehensive assessment.
