Reviews

Oda connects the rich local story of the construction of the San Francisco Japanese Cultural and Trade Center with a larger history of Japanese American work as cultural brokers. No other book so thoroughly and thoughtfully explores the transpacific and urban dimensions of this important historical moment. --Nancy Kwak, University of California, San Diego Oda weaves together urban, international, Asian American, and Pacific histories, illuminating the role of Japanese Americans in shaping San Francisco's identity as the 'Gateway to the Pacific.' The result is a fascinating and effective fusion that makes important contributions across fields. --Mary L. Dudziak, author of War Time--Mary L. Dudziak, author of War Time
