Reviews

"Readable, carefully organized, and well researched." -- Choice "Confronts issues regarding racism, gender, religion, education, and employment during the first half of the 20th century in California. Yoo takes an extraordinary glimpse at the complexities of a dual society and establishes a thoughtful analyzation both a historical and a cultural context." -- Erin L. Carter, Journal of the West "Yoo has wrought a lively and innovative portrait of California's Nisei, the second generation Japanese Americans. Treating the decades between the pasage of the 1924 Immigration Act and the 1949 trial of Iva Toguri, Yoo's account is knit together by a careful examination of Nisei discourses on identity that occurred in and around key community institutions: ethnic schools, churches, and the vernacular press." -- James J. Rawls, California History "Sharply focused and well written, this scholarly monograph analyzes the 'niche culture' developed by California's Nisei community between the Immigration Act of 1924, which ended further Japanese migration, and the post-World War II adjustment to the incarceration of the Japanese-American community." -- Dennie E. Showalter, Multicultural Review "What did it mean to live as a young Japanese American in California from the 1920s through World War II? This is the question that David Yoo seeks to examine in his carefully researched and thoughtful social history." -- Gordon H. Chang, Western Historical Quarterly "[Yoo's] well-crafted study offers readers the felt thoughts of a minority generation and, importantly for official history, demonstrates again that the internment was not an aberration but an outgrowth of long-standing discriminatory efforts aimed at Japanese Americans." -- The Japan Times ADVANCE PRAISE "A marvelous contribution ... the voices of Nisei men and women emerge with irony, vigor, and poignancy -- fully human -- within the context of their times." -- Valerie Matsumoto, the author of Farming the Home Place: A Japanese American Community in California, 1919-82 "A marvelous contribution ... the voices of Nisei men and women emerge with irony, vigor, and poignancy -- fully human -- within the context of their times." -- Valerie Matsumoto, the author of Farming the Home Place: A Japanese American Community in California, 1919-82
