9780961454104: Country Voices: The Oral History of a Japanese American Family Farm Community

The author combines oral interviews of Japanese-American farm families with his own comments to tell about their history, culture, and farming in Del Rey, California. The result is an uneven read, as parts would appeal only to the ardent sociologist, e.g., the chapter on community organizations, while others are more general, e.g., that on evacuation and relocation of Japanese-Americans during World War II gives us another important view of that tragedy. The section on farming itself is the strongest. Some of the work covers the familiar territory of generational conflicts, racial prejudice, and the struggle between Americanization and preservation of ethnic roots. Primarily for the sociologist, folk culturist, and agriculturist.
