Takeyuki Tsuda is Professor of Anthropology in the School of Human Evolution and Social Change at Arizona State University. He is the editor of Diasporic Homecomings: Ethnic Return Migration in Comparative Perspective.
"[The book's] main strength is its comparison in ethnic heritage of
four different generations of Japanese Americans. None of the
previous books on this subject has compared three or more
generations in the formation of ethnicity among members of one or
more ethnic groups."-American Journal of Sociology
"Using the keyword `generation,' Tsuda deftly explores notions of transnational ethnicity among contemporary Japanese Americans, moving beyond internment to provide an insightful analysis of how modern Japanese Americans have created new identities and communities in the American cultural landscape."-K. Scott Wong,author of Americans First: Chinese Americans and the Second World War
"In drawing and reflecting upon the voices and experiences of different generational cohorts, Tsuda not only fills a void in Japanese American studies but expands our very understanding of the concept of 'ethnic heritage.' Adeptly parsing processes of assimilation, transnationalism, racialization, and multicultural discourse, Tsuda engages the factors that shape the retention and refashioning of ancestral culture."-Michael Omi,University of California, Berkeley
