This book provides readers with a fresh perspective on Brazilian Nikkei migration to Japan. It provides a non-biased view on how “ethnic migrants” perceive what has been labeled as “ethnic migration."
In this comprehensive book, Sarah LeBaron von Baeyer offers an invaluable update to the literature on Nikkei (i.e. Japanese Brazilian) migrants in particular and to the study of Japan’s minority groups more broadly. . . . Living Transnationally Between Japan and Brazil is an important, comprehensive, and deeply researched book about the improvisational and ever-unfolding nature of transnational living. I highly recommend this book to scholars of Japan, minority identities, and transnationalism, and anyone else who is fascinated by the kaleidoscope of identities en route.
