"A unique collection..."--Terry Hong, Asian Week "I highly recommend Searching for Home Abroad for scholars and students of anthropology, history, and ethnic studies, as well as for all those interested in transnational migration and globalization."--Nobuko Adachi, History: A Review of Books "A major strength is the empirical grounding of much of the research in fieldwork conducted in Japan and Brazil, a dimension that always adds to social analysis."--Daniela de Carvalho, Journal of Japanese Studies "[S]hed[s] new light on this specific minority group as well as raise[s] some tough questions about transnationalism and ethnic-identity formation in general."--Brian Masaru Hayashi, The Journal of Asian Studies "[A] very interesting, informative, analytical, provocative and readable book."--Antonio Sergio Alfredo Guimaraes, Journal of Latin American Studies "[A] fascinating collection of essays on diverse aspects of the Japanese migration to Brazil in the early 20th century and the recent flows of Japanese Brazilians who relocated to Japan... [A] well-grounded and engaging reading for scholars from various disciplines and migration-related practitioners alike."--Ana Margheritis, The Latin Americanist "[N]ot just essential reading for students and scholars of Nikkei (people of Japanese descent) issues; [this book] is also an instructive primer on the contingency of ethnic identity."--Robert Efird, Pacific Affairs "Overall, the essays collected in this volume offer suggestive insights on the convoluted and unique century old Japanese-Brazilian transnational formation. For the most part, the different contributions offer highly accessible reading for graduate and advanced undergraduate students in Asian, Latin American and migration studies."--Gerardo Renique, Bulletin of Latin American Research
