gift wrap?: 

Edited by Lane Ryo Hirabayashi, Akemi Kikumura-Yano, and James A. Hirabayashi.

This anthology features 21 original chapters, written by the International Nikkei Research Project research participants. This exciting and innovative collection of works explores the themes of Nikkei community formations, the evolution of Nikkei identities, and the impact of transnational and global ties on contemporary Nikkei populations.

This ambitious work confronts the complex question of who and what is a Nikkei (a person of Japanese descent) by studying the communities in seven countries in the Americas: Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Canada, Paraguay, Peru, and the United States. It also considers the special case of the many Latin American Nikkei who have returned to Japan in recent decades to seek employment. Paper: 358 pp.
