Women of Okinawa: Nine Voices from a Garrison Island

by

Women of Okinawa: Nine Voices from a Garrison Island Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In conversations with Ruth Ann Keyso, nine Okinawan women reflect on life on a garrison island: on relations with mainland Japan; on their dreams and ambitions; on Japanese treatment of ethnic minorities; on the changing role of women in Japanese and in Okinawan society; and on the drawbacks and pleasures of living side-by-side with U.S. military personnel and their families. Ruth Ann Keyso's compelling account sheds light on contemporary Okinawa, United States-Japan relations, and the small truths revealed by life stories clearly told and well reported.
