Heterogeneous Origins of Japanese America

This chapter explores Japan's major attitude to emigration, which helped to produce heterogeneous groups of Issei. As various forms of expansionist thought clashed with the pragmatism of dekasegi laborers, ethnic solidarity or any concept of common identity barely existed among Japanese immigrants at the outset. The chapter sets the stage for the tumultuous beginning of Issei society and its history in America.

Keywords:   Japan, emigration, expansionism, Issei, immigrants
