The Koreans in Hawai'i: a pictorial history, 1903-2003
The Koreans in Hawai'i brings together hundreds of photographs to tell the powerful story of the people who have shaped the Korean immigrant experience in America over the past one hundred years. Although Koreans faced the same hardships and barriers as other East Asian immigrants in the New World, the story of their migration, settlement, and assimilation into American society has received relatively little attention. This volume not only commemorates the centennial of Koreans in Hawai'i, but also offers readers an unprecedented look at the rich history of a community that continues to develop and change to this day. The photographs, in illuminating and complimenting writings and oral histories found elsewhere, provide insight into Hawai'i's Korean immigrant community, politics, and everyday life.
