Japanese Diaspora and Migration Reconsidered
In contrast to most studies of migration, which assume that migrants arrive from less developed countries to the industrialised world, where they suffer from discrimination, poor living conditions, and downward social mobility, this book examines a different sort of diaspora - descendants of Japanese migrants - "Nikkei" - in Bolivia, who, after a history of organized migration, have achieved middle-class status in a developing country, while enjoying much symbolic capital among the majority population. Based on extensive original research, the book considers the everyday lives of Nikkei and their identity, discusses how despite their relative success they remain not fully integrated into Bolivia's imperfect pluricultural society, and explores how they think about, and relate to, Japan.
