This revised and expanded edition of Japanese Americans : From Relocation to Redress presents the most complete and current published account of the Japanese American experience from the evacuation order of World War II to the public policy debate over redress and reparations.

Mental health research and practice in minority communities : development of culturally sensitive training programs by Manuel Miranda( Book )

4 editions published in 1986 in English and held by 286 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ten studies concerned with developing culturally sensitive programs for mental health treatment of American minority groups are presented. Chapters 1-5 discuss variables to be considered when creating such programs. Work in cross-cultural settings has raised questions about the validity of some of the newly developed psychiatric diagnostic criteria, as represented in the Diagnostic Statistical Manual iii, when applied to culturally distinctive groups. Research is presented to demonstrate major variations in symptom presentations and "illness discourses," challenging the assumption that specific symptoms will be uniformly associated with diagnostic entities across cultures. Specific cultural variations and treatment needs are discussed for American Indians, Blacks and Mexican Americans. Chapters 6-10 represent the work of mental health clinicians and administrators who draw from their experience treating Hispanics. Asians, Pacific Asians, and people from Cuba, Haiti, Puerto Rico, and the Bahamas. Emphasis is on delivery of services and the relationship between provider and recipient, both of which factors can be modified to use aspects of the client's culture and therefore treat him or her more effectively. Extensive lists of references are included. (Ps)

Generations and identity : the Japanese American by Harry H. L Kitano( Book )

3 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 66 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The story of people of Japanese descent in the United States is told in its historic context. The Japanese came to America with cultural values that differed greatly from the mainstream U.S. society. They were also set apart by appearance. Conflict between Japan and the United States exacerbated the problems between the Japanese Americans and the American majority, but Japanese Americans eventually won acceptance and the promise of redress for incarceration during World War ii. An underlying theme of this volume is that of change, since the Japanese American experience reflects the change that is essential to U.S. society. Another theme is that of diversity. Japanese Americans, who once were a relatively homogeneous group, now represent American diversity as the succeeding generations have found different American environments. A final theme is that diversity and change go together in broader social and historic contexts that cannot be ignored. The following chapters explore the Japanese American experience: (1) "Introduction"; (2) "Background of Immigration"; (3) "Up to World War ii"; (4) "The Wartime Evacuation (1942-1945)"; (5) "Closing of the Camps: The Immediate Post War Era"; (6) "The Postwar Period"; (7) "The Community: Its Culture"; (8) "The Community: Its Organization"; (9) "The Community: Its Families"; (10) "Hawaii"; (11) "Identity and Generations"; (12) "Present Status"; and (13) "Summary, Conclusions." Information pertaining specifically to education appears in chapter 4 (page 47) and chapter 12 (pages 180-184). Each chapter contains a bibliography. (Contains 24 tables.) (Sld)

Japanese Americans: The Evolution of a Subculture. Ethnic Groups in American Life Series by Harry H. L Kitano( Book )

1 edition published in 1969 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Japanese-American accomplishments are a logical outcome of Japanese-American culture and institutions, but, more importantly, of the energy and spirit of the hundreds of thousands of Japanese, some prominent figures now, who have made places for themselves in the American society. Nevertheless, the Japanese-American, like any American, must adapt to ever-changing problems and conditions. This study is an attempt to present the experiences of one specific ethnic group as an illustration of a means of adapting to interethnic contact and conflict with a minimum of violence and chaos. The following topics are dealt with: (1) strategy of adaptation and general background of the Japanese-Group; (2) Japanese in the U.S. until World War ii; (3) the wartime evacuation; (4) conditions after World War ii; (5) the family in America and Japan; (6) the community in America and Japan; (7) the culture; and, (8) social deviance.
