Abstract

Colorado’s Japanese Americans opens cleverly by posing the question: ‘”what have the Japanese… . . . done in the century they have been in Colorado to make it a better state, a better place? What have they done for themselves, and for America?’ “ The answer Hosokawa’s answer provides is ‘”much’ much” (p. 245). This richly detailed history of the Japanese American experience in Colorado is a welcome addition to the trend toward local and regional historical trendstudies in Japanese American history in . As such it providesing a very detailed, predominantly narrative, account of those of Japanese ancestry who have called Colorado home for more than 100 one hundred years.
