About this title


Describes the experiences of first-generation and second-generation Japanese Americans, and recounts the legal obstacles and discrimination they faced

From School Library Journal:

Grade 6-10-Another in this fine series of titles adapted from the author's adult work Strangers from a Different Shore (Little, 1989). A well-written text balances facts with personal accounts. Intriguing, vintage black-and-white photographs contribute to the inviting open format. This volume opens with a chapter on Japanese immigration paraphrased from Spacious Dreams (Chelsea, 1994), the first book in the series. Subsequent chapters cover the prejudice encountered by the Issei (first-generation immigrants to the U.S.), the conditions they found, the jobs they got, and the separate Japanese economy that developed. Concluding portions discuss the Nisei (second-generation born here) and their adjustment to American life. The book covers in a more appealing fashion similar material found in Linda Perrin's Coming to America (Delacorte, 1980); it provides details for information touched upon in Harry Kitano's The Japanese Americans (Chelsea, 1987). Unlike the other works, Issei and Nisei covers only up to the eve of World War II. A valuable contribution, essential in communities serving citizens of Japanese ancestry.
