Race for Empire: Koreans as Japanese and Japanese as Americans During World War II
"This is one of the finest studies to appear in the field of East Asian studies in recent years. In this highly readable book, Fujitani offers superior thinking and analysis on race relations, empire, and wartime collaboration with the enemy." --Bruce Cumings, University of Chicago
"Pushing against national archives and historiographies and linguistic and disciplinary formations, Race for Empire is a singular, remarkable achievement." --Gary Y. Okihiro, author of Pineapple Culture: A History of the Tropical and Temperate Zones
"Race for Empire offers a profound and thought-provoking re-interpretation. Through excellent use of a wide range of material, Fujitani presents a meticulously researched analysis. This is a milestone in the study of wartime Japan and the U.S." --Teresa Morris-Suzuki, author of Borderline Japan: Foreigners and Frontier Controls in the Postwar Era
