From the Land of Morning Calm: Koreans in America

Some brief overview of book

A useful, if outdated, volume for a broad strokes history of Korean immigration to the United States - including an eye-opening chapter on second generation Korean-Americans. Details the differences sociopolitically between the first and second wave of immigration, and ends with reflection on rebuilding after the LA riots. I believe the scholarship has been updated in other Takaki volumes since the publication of this one, and for my purposes (beginning to understand the push-and-pull for second generation Koreans of a certain age) this book was a great place to start.

An essential addition to the bookshelf.
