Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In his global perspective and analytic treatment, Reed Ueda goes beyond a narrative historical account of twentieth-century American immigration to focus on the global and international forces that prompted the large-scale uprooting and transplanting of people following World War II.
