Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Subject to everything from obstacles imposed by their native government to legal attacks here, the Issei and Nisei receive a fair hearing in this detailed historyone of the best books on the subject. Ichioka tells of the complexities of the labor market, labor organizing (especially of miners), and the ever-increasing laws against American citizenship, land ownership, and even land leasing. Legal actions, particularly in California, culminated in a string of anti-Japanese court decisions and the 1924 Immigration Act. The author has skillfully used Japanese and American primary sources, thoroughly documenting his carefully constructed narrative. A welcome addition, the book belongs in every U.S. and East Asian history collection. Kenneth W. Berger, Duke Univ. Library, Durham, N.C.

This is probably the most detailed of all the books describing the history of the 1st generation (Issei) immigrants from Japan. Ichioka's research for this book extended from Japan all the way to the dusty shelves of UC Berkeley and UCLA's libraries. If you ever wanted to learn about why these people left their native Japan (push and pull factors) for the hard life that awaited for them in the xenophobic society of Hawaii & California in the late 19th/early 20th century, then this is the book to read.....
