Americanization, Acculturation, and Ethnic Identity: The Nisei Generation in Hawaii
Eileen Tamura examines the forms that U.S. hysteria over 'Americanization' took after World War I in Hawaii, where the children of Japanese imigrants--the Nisei--were targets of widespread discrimination. She offers a wealth of original source material, using personal accounts and statistical data to create an essential resource for students of American ethnic history and U.S. race and class relations.
