Immigrant Transnationalism between Two Empires
This introductory chapter lays out the theoretical foundations of the book, which examines the development of transnational ideas, practices, and politics among Japanese immigrants (Issei) in the American West prior to the Pacific War. To a more complete picture of the Issei's transnational past, a so-called “inter-National perspective” is used, one that stresses the interstitial (not transcendental) nature of their lives between the two nation-states. An overview of the succeeding chapters is also presented.
