Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This is a collection of the last essays by Yuji Ichioka, the foremost authority on Japanese-American history, who passed away two years ago. The essays focus on Japanese Americans during the interwar years and explore issues such as the nisei (American-born generation) relationship toward Japan, Japanese-American attitudes toward Japan's prewar expansionism in Asia, and the meaning of “loyalty” in a racist society—all controversial but central issues in Japanese-American history.

Ichioka draws from original sources in Japanese and English to offer an unrivaled picture of Japanese Americans in these years. Also included in this volume are an introductory essay by editor Eiichiro Azuma that places Ichioka's work in Japanese-American historiography, and a postscript by editor Chang reflecting on Ichiokas life-work.

Book News Annotation:

This work contains 12 historical essays by the late Ichioka (formerly of the U. of California at Los Angeles), "unarguably the most influential figure in the field of Japanese American history," in the words of one of the editors. Ichioka's work, as it is presented here, was predominantly concerned with issues of immigration, generations as political constructs, and acculturation. His approach sought to go beyond such overly simple and slanted categories as "Americanized" or "unassimilated."

About the Author

The late Yuji Ichioka was the founding father of the scholarly study of Japanese-American history. His book on the immigrant generation in America, The Issei: The World of the First-Generation Japanese Immigrants, 1885-1924 (1988), is considered a classic. He invented the term Asian American, and trained many of the scholars now teaching Asian American history at colleges and universities.
