Product description

Review

"This study covers the development of the anti-Japanese movement in California from its inception in the late nineteenth century until its 'victory' in the passage of the immigration act excluding Japanese from entering the United States in 1924. The author, a historian, has chronicled the story of the California exclusionists, groups of men and women active in California politics and society, often divided on many issues and interests but united in their desire to halt forever the coming of Japanese to American shores. The passage of the immigration legislation of 1924 brought to an end the most pressing of their demands and the Japanophobes retired temporarily only to emerge after the outbreak of the Pacific War in 1941 to demand the evacuation and incarceration of America's Japanese."--"Pacific Affairs

From the Inside Flap

"The years have failed to dull the sheen of this slender volume. Its thick subject matters―regionalism, racial politics, democracy―have taken on different casts over the life of the book, yet they retain their relevance and timeliness."―Gary Y. Okihiro, author of Margins and Mainstreams

"The insights offered by Roger Daniels almost four decades ago remain trenchant and incisive."―Sucheng Chan, author of This Bittersweet Soil
