2003.500.4148 Book This is the story of an American-born daughter of Japanese immigrants who is caught in Japan in the 1940s and returns to America after the war. She spends her early childhood exposed to two cultures in a pre-war Japanese settlement in West Seattle. When U.S. anti-Japanese sentiments escalate, she is called "Jap" and told "Go back home." Her parents take her to their homeland where she experiences discrimination from the Japanese, who call her "Yankee girl" because she is different and because of anti-U.S. sentiment. Two years after Hiroshima she travels alone to Boston and works her way through college. Although this intrepid young woman encounters enormous hurdles on both sides of the Pacific, she refuses to allow anyone or anything to crush her spirit.

2003.500.4150 Book From 1910 to 1940, over half a million people sailed through the Golden Gate, hoping to start a new life in America. But they did not all disembark in San Francisco; instead, most were ferried across the bay to the Angel Island Immigration Station. For many, this was the real gateway to the United States. For others, it was a prison and their final destination, before being sent home. In this landmark book, historians Erika Lee and Judy Yung (both descendants of immigrants detained on the island) provide the first comprehensive history of the Angel Island Immigration Station. Drawing on extensive new research, including immigration records, oral histories, and inscriptions on the barrack walls, the authors produce a sweeping yet intensely personal history of Chinese paper sons, Japanese picture brides, Korean students, South Asian political activists, Russian and Jewish refugees, Mexican families, Filipino repatriates, and many others from around the world. Their experiences on Angel Island reveal how America's discriminatory immigration policies changed the lives of immigrants and transformed the nation. A place of heartrending history and breathtaking beauty, the Angel Island Immigration Station is a National Historic Landmark, and like Ellis Island, it is recognized as one of the most important sites where America's immigration history was made. This fascinating history is ultimately about America itself and its complicated relationship to immigration, a story that continues today. Angel Island is the official publication commemorating the immigration station's 100th anniversary Angel Island: Immigrant Gateway to America Lee, Erika and Judy Yung 2010 Oxford University Press

2003.500.4156 Book When the American government began impounding Japanese American citizens after Pearl Harbor, photography became a battleground. The control of the means of representation affected nearly every aspect of the incarceration, from the mug shots criminalizing Japanese Americans to the prohibition of cameras in the hands of inmates. The government hired photographers to make an extensive record of the forced removal and incarceration but forbade Japanese Americans from photographically documenting the conditions of the camps or any aspect of their lives. In this insightful study, Jasmine Alinder explores the photographic record of the imprisonment in war relocation centers such as Manzanar, Tule Lake, Jerome, and others. She investigates why photographs were made, how they were meant to function, and how they have been reproduced and interpreted subsequently by the popular press and museums in constructing versions of public history." "Moving Images examines the work of Japanese American photographers operating both during and after the incarceration, including Manzanar inmate Toyo Miyatake, who constructed his own camera to document the complicated realities of camp life for his fellow inmates. More recently, contemporary artists Patrick Nagatani and Masumi Hayashi have used photography to reckon with the legacy of incarceration by journeying to the camp sites and creating photographs that bridge the intergenerational divides between their parents, themselves, and their children." "Illustrated with more than forty photographs, Moving Images reveals the significance of the camera in the process of incarceration as well as the construction of race, citizenship, and patriotism in this complex historical moment.

2003.500.4180 Book Faced with systematic discrimination in Canada, early Chinese immigrants had little choice but to create their own economic niche. From the turn of the twentieth century through the Second World War, a majority of Canada's Chinese immigrants were laundry workers in towns and cities from coast to coast. Although the hand laundry was not a traditional trade in China, laundry work required little capital, and could be performed despite a lack of familiarity with Western languages and financial systems. The hours were long, the work was physically demanding, and most Chinese laundry workers lived a marginal existence." "With the advent of modern laundry equipment and synthetic fibres in the 1950s, and the ageing of the laundrymen themselves, the Chinese hand laundry came to an end. To generations of Chinese-Canadians, however, it remains a symbol of hard work, sacrifice and enduring hardship.

2003.500.4182 Book This book was originally written as a series of three volumes on Japanese cultural traditions in British Columbia, southern Alberta, and Metropolitan Toronto. The three authors - Dr. Carlo Caldarola, Dr. Mitsuru Shimpo and Dr. K. Victor Ujimoto - conducted their research and fieldwork in the mid-1970s, examining how long-held traditions and beliefs had been affected by profound social upheaval. The result is a snapshot in time, profiling the unique history of each region's Japanese-Canadians, and how they were responding to the effects of diaspora, internment, prejudice and assimilation. A wide range of cultural traditions, from Buddhism to the martial arts, are explored through firsthand accounts, archival photographs, and in-depth descriptions of specific practices as they existed at the time. Over the past 30 years, Japanese culture has become part of the Canadian mainstream - bearing witness to the vitality of the practices described in these pages, and the determination with which Japanese-Canadians kept their traditions alive.

He is little aware of the world outside until shadowy figures hiding in the fields, bodies floating in the river, and rumors of thievery and murder begin to intrude on his cherished solitude.

Through her vivid tales, the tragedy occurring across the river unfolds, and over the course of the year the hunter unnervingly discovers that the fates of the young woman and four others rest in his hands.

Recovering from a divorce, Watanabe is unsure of himself and the course his future might take. When he wins a local karaoke contest, he discovers not only a newfound confidence, but the courage to take risks. With the victor's medallion in hand, he seizes the moment--and his life changes dramatically, albeit not as he might have hoped. From a weekend romp with Megumi, a former hooker, comes a physical beating and the loss of his beloved medallion. Stung by this humiliation, and yet able to muster a courage long dormant, his quest begins. From the western states and on to Asia, with a return trip in a shipping container, we follow his wild ride. Will a Korean barmaid be his downfall--or his redemption? Will Billy, a closeted gay man, or Milt, a heavily-armed dwarf, help Guy on his journey? And what about the patricidal Chinese businessman who will stop at nothing to create a global karaoke empire?

2003.500.4300 Book "On January 17, 1973, the Paris Peace Accords were concluded with the hope of bringing an end to decades of bloodshed in Vietnam, and an end to years of American intervention. What took place, however, was far from peaceful - as the combined forces of the North Vietnamese Army and Viet Cong launched an all-out offensive to end the war with complete victory over the beleaguered south.". "Here, culled from extensive interviews and research, is the story of the end of the war as told from both sides of the conflict. Included are never-before revealed accounts from people of every level and involvement in the Vietnam War: NVA and Viet Cong soldiers, U.S. embassy personnel, guerilla commanders, civilians, generals, double-agents - and leaders from both sides including former president Gerald Ford and North Vietnamese military commander General Tran Van Tra.". "From the first hints of the impending invasion from the north, to the gut-wrenching hours before the fall of Saigon, when a brave pilot defied his orders to return to base and rescue the last five Marines from the rooftop of the U.S. embassy, this is the Vietnam War as it was - raw, brutal, and tragic.
