San Jose Japantown ‘Stand(s) on Giants’ Shoulders

アーサー・A・ハンセン日米ウィークリー

While perusing this beautiful and bountiful 470-page tome affording its lucky readers a temporal, spatial, and sociocultural journey relative to San Jose’s Japantown, I reflected upon my personal journey regarding this historic place. It was secured by my reading of Stephen Misawa, ed., Beginnings: Japanese Americans in San Jose ...

HATSUMI: One Grandmother’s Journey through the Japanese Canadian Internment

アーサー・A・ハンセン日米ウィークリー

The World War II exclusion and detention experience of Japanese Americans is now fairly widely familiar, at least in general terms, to many within the United States. Their knowledge of this particular subject has been broadened and deepened progressively since the 1970s through a veritable media avalanche of historical representations ...

The ‘Invented Fiction’ of the Model Minority and the Controversy Behind the JA Creed

アーサー・A・ハンセン日米ウィークリー

Stimulating an Appreciation of America’s Diverse History and Cultures Through Preservation

アーサー・A・ハンセン日米ウィークリー

Exploring the Wartime Kibei-Nisei Struggles

アーサー・A・ハンセン日米ウィークリー

“What I have attempted to introduce in (Show Me the Way Home),” writes Takako Day in the preface to her brilliant, bold, highly significant, if rather sprawling book, “are the lives and the struggles of Japanese-speaking Japanese Americans (known as ‘Kibei Nisei,’ a minority within a minority) who survived the ...

A Young Nisei’s Life, Reimagined

アーサー・A・ハンセン日米ウィークリー

I knew of Gene Oishi, the Nisei author of Fox Drum Bebop, well before I actually met him. This was because in 1968 he became implicated in a national (even international) cause célèbre for his victimization in a high-profile racist episode. Then a Baltimore Sun reporter, Oishi was ...

The Fruits of Santa Clara Valley’s Asian Laborers

アーサー・A・ハンセン日米ウィークリー

As Cecilia Tsu tells readers in her cogent introduction, its underlying purpose is “recovering the intertwined history of the Santa Clara Valley (in California) when it was known as the Garden of the World (1880-1940) along with the history of the Asian immigrants (Chinese, Japanese, and Filipino) who farmed its ...

An Intimate Look at the Life of ‘An American with a Japanese Face’

アーサー・A・ハンセン日米ウィークリー

It is rare that I find myself reviewing a book on a friend of mine authored by still another friend, but that is the case with Matt Briones’ Charles Kikuchi-centered cultural history Jim and Jap Crow. My friendship with Kikuchi revolved around two events: our participation on a controversial panel ...
