(p. ix) Acknowledgments

The completion of this book project represents the end of a lengthy process, and we especially are grateful for the patience and goodwill extended to us by the contributors whose work is featured in these pages and that constitutes a very high level of scholarship. While all published writings are a reflection of a certain time and place, we are confident that these essays will be an important touchstone for those of us who focus on Asian American history and others who have an interest in this area.

Thanks to Nancy Toff and the various editorial assistants at Oxford University Press. We would especially like to thank Phi Hong Su of the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), for her able and attentive research assistance.

Eiichiro would like to express his deep gratitude to colleagues, staff, and students at the University of Pennsylvania’s History Department and Asian American Studies Program. Hiromi deserves a special mention for her unending emotional support.

From David, many thanks to colleagues, staff, and students at the UCLA Asian American Studies Center and the Department and the Institute of American Cultures. The bridging of research with our community partners in the greater Los Angeles area has been an especially meaningful dimension of being at UCLA. He also is thankful to his coauthors, Helen Jin Kim and Timothy Tseng, for the collaboration on their essay for this volume. As always, it is a joy to share life with Ruth, Jonathan, and Joshua.

Finally, we would like to dedicate this volume to the late Yuji Ichioka, our mentor and sensei. He taught us and many others about reclaiming the buried pasts of Asian Americans.

—David K. Yoo and Eiichiro Azuma (p. x)
