Editorial Reviews


"Chung's depiction of how Zainichi Koreans are adapting to life in contemporary Japan offers a needed update to the classic works by Changsoo Lee and George DeVos. No longer are these Koreans locked into divisions reflecting the Cold War divide in the country of their ancestors. Nor are they stymied by Japan's reputedly homogeneous and oppressive culture. Instead, reflecting on their pioneering role in forcing Japanese society to confront its diversity, they are choosing strategies that will continue to remake the nation as it incorporates new waves of immigrants."
-Len Schoppa, University of Virginia

"Nowhere is the enigmatic nature of Japanese politics and society more evident than in the areas of immigration and citizenship. In this brilliant book, Erin Chung deciphers the enigma, showing how immigrants have challenged traditional conceptions of Japanese identity and thereby opened new avenues for democratic development. It is a must-read."
-James Hollifield, Southern Methodist University

"Erin Chung's Immigration and Citizenship in Japan is a must-read for scholars of groups difference, immigration and politics. The case of Japan represents a fascinating set of circumstances that Chung probes with the best empirical and theoretical tools social science has to offer. Scholars of immigration, race, citizenship and Japanese politics will learn lots from the excellent book. Chung has a new and unique voice, and this book makes a definitive statement in several fields."
-Mark Sawyer, University of California, Los Angeles

Book Description

This book examines how state policies and immigrant advocacy groups shape choices for immigrant political incorporation in contemporary Japan through the lens of Japan's multi-generational Korean community. With immigrant agency at the center of its analysis, this book challenges conventional understandings of citizenship that associate citizenship acquisition with political empowerment.
