About the author (2004)

Gil Asakawa is a Sansei (3rd-generation Japanese American) writer and editor who was born in Tokyo and moved to the United States as a child. His roots in both cultures have led him to write extensively about pop culture and politics from a JA perspective. He has written the weekly "Nikkei View" column online and in syndication since 1998. He is currently director of the website of the Denver Post.
