A History of Japanese in Hawaii.
United Japanese Society of Hawaii, Honolulu.
This handbook contains the history of the first hundred years of Japanese activity in Hawaii, of the pioneer immigrant workers and their progeny. The book offers valuable source material to the people of Hawaii who want to know their origins and who wish to teach their children of the achievements of their ancestors. Ninety-one pages of black and white photographs depict historical events and people from 1867 to the present. Following this pictorial display there are 32 chapters. Topics include the first Japanese in Hawaii, the contributions which these immigrants made to Hawaii, plantation life, the Hawaiian revolution, the exploitation of immigrants, the struggle for equality, the Japanese and local industries, language schools, religion, statehood campaign, enemy aliens, and a new Pacific race. Some primary source material is included. Various agreements, treaties, codes, and name lists are contained in the appendices. Summaries of special celebrations held in Hawaii, each marking a milestone in the life of surviving immigrant workers and their children, conclude the book. (Author/RM)
