JAPANESE NEW YORK: MIGRANT ARTISTS AND SELF-REINVENTION ON THE WORLD STAGE. Olga Kanzaki Sooudi. University of Hawaii Press, Honolulu, 2014. 264 pp. with one ill. 24 x 16 cm. LC 2014-5772 ISBN 9780824839413 In English.
Paperbound edition also available; see Worldwide 166830. Publisher's description: The story of Japanese migrants in NYC is both a story about Japan and a way of examining Japan from beyond its borders. The Japanese presence abroad, a dynamic process involving the moving, settling, and return to Japan of people and their cultural products, is still underexplored. Sooudi's work will help fill this lacuna and will contribute to international migration studies, to the study of contemporary Japanese culture and society, and to the study of Japanese youth, while shedding light on what it means to be a creative migrant worker in the global city today.
