Century of the Tiger: One Hundred Years of Korean Culture in America Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Gathered here are works by some of the best and most eloquent Korean authors in Korea and America, past and present. They tell the dramatic story of Korean culture in America over the last century and of the diverse experiences of Korean Americans today, particularly in Hawai'i.

Book News Annotation:

The immigration of Koreans to the US began in 1903, when Japan occupied their country. Most moved to Hawai'i. This beautifully illustrated book conveys the stories of these Korean immigrants and their lives in Hawai'i and the US in essays taken from autobiographical memoirs and fiction, some written for this volume, others excerpted from published works. Annotation (c)2003 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
