Summary
"English translation and first privately published edition of a valuable book on Japanese immigration and internment during WWII. Initially published in Japanese to a limited readership. This informative study, candidly and insightfully written, details the formative period of Japanese migration to Peru and, just as importantly, the trying experience of the author, his family, and 1,800 other Japanese-Peruvians who were interned in the US during WWII. Excellent memoir portrays Asian immigrant experience of cultural adaption in Latin America. Insightful foreword by the late C. Harvey Gardiner, who wrote extensively on the Japanese in Latin America and Peru, in particular"--Handbook of Latin American Studies, v. 58.
