Abstract:

"In Search of Our Frontier explores the complex transpacific history of Japanese settler colonialism, which linked Japanese America with imperial Japan through the exchange of migrant bodies, expansionist knowledge, colonial capital, and developmental technology in the Asia-Pacific basin. By focusing on residents of and remigrants from Japanese America as a vital link between migration-led expansionism within and outside of Japan's formal empire, this book offers new interpretive frames and perspectives that will allow us to understand the capacity of Japanese settler colonialism to operate outside the aegis of the home empire--or under the sovereign domination of another empire--for the shared goal of 'overseas racial development' and the construction of a 'Japanese Pacific' vis-à-vis a US-led 'white Pacific'"--Provided by publisher.
