The author reveals that the resulting American, Japanese, and first generation Japanese-American women's movement came to affect more than alcohol or even religion. While the Women's Christian Temperance Union employed the language of evangelism and Victorian family values, its members were tactfully expedient in accommodating their traditional causes to suffrage and other feminist goals. The author illuminates the movements and experiences of American missionaries and their effect on their Japanese proteges. 187 pages including index. B&W photos. Pages 75 and 138 have been dog-earred. Fabulous copy. Bookseller Inventory #
