Most widely held works by Bill Hosokawa
Nisei : the quiet Americans by Bill Hosokawa( Book )

12 editions published between 1969 and 1984 in English and held by 1,523 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Hailed at the time of its publication in 1969, Bill Hosokawa's Nisei remains an inspiring account of the original Japanese immigrants and their role in the development of the West. Hosokawa recounts the ordeals faced by the immigrant generation and their American-born offspring, the Nisei; the ill-advised government decisions that led to their uprooting during World War II; how they withstood harsh camp life; and their courageous efforts to prove their loyalty to the United States. As Hosokawa additionally demonstrates, since World War II, Japanese Americans have achieved exceptional social, economic, and political progress. Their efforts led to apologies by four U.S. presidents for wartime injustices and redress through the landmark Civil Liberties Act of 1988. Brought up-to-date in this newly revised edition, Nisei details the transformation of these "quiet Americans" from despised security risks to respected citizens

Colorado's Japanese Americans : from 1886 to the present by Bill Hosokawa( )

7 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 1,029 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Hosokawa traces personal histories, such as Bob Sakata's journey from internment in a relocation camp to founding of a vast vegetable farm; the conviction of three sisters for assisting the escape of German POWs; and the years of initiative and determination behind Toshihiro Kizaki's ownership of Sushi Den, a beloved Denver eatery. In addition to personal stories, the author also relates the larger history of the interweaving of cultures in Colorado, from the founding of the Navy's Japanese language school at the University of Colorado to the merging of white and Japanese American congregations at Arvada's Simpson United Methodist Church."--Jacket
JACL in quest of justice by Bill Hosokawa( Book )

11 editions published between 1982 and 1984 in Japanese and English and held by 561 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This history of the Japanese American Citizens League was written not only for its thirty thousand members but also to answer JACL's critics, notably the Sansei--third-generation Japanese Americans--many of whom believe their fathers should have resisted the Evacuation during World War ll. Did JACL chart a wise course of cooperation with the federal government, or did it betray American principles and its own constituents by urging them to accept evacuation to U.S. Army-operated concentration camps? One of the most important purposes of the book is to take the Sansei back to those tragic, controversial years and show them exactly what their fathers confronted. Not only did they meet that crisis in what seemed the only way feasible at the time, but JACL has fought for full rights of citizenship for Japanese Americans ever since the war with remarkable success--an extraordinary record of accomplishment despite limited resources and membership. This book is for everyone concerned about ways in which Congress and the Supreme Court can fail to uphold the Constitution, and for those who will appreciate the story of one minority group's total--and nonviolent--victory over discrimination."--Dust jacket

Born in Seattle, WA, of Japanese American parents, Jim Yoshida grew up in a skid row hotel operated by his parents. He played football at his high school and was named All-City fullback and offered a college athletic scholarship. Sadly, his father died. His mother took him and his sisters to Japan to deliver his father's ashes to the family burial plot when WWII broke out and the family had to stay in Japan. Jim was forced to serve in the Imperial Japanese Army in China. There he had many experiences and suffered terrible ordeals. When the war ended and he made it back to Japan, he learned that he had lost his U.S. citizenship. To prove his loyalty, he persuaded a US officer to let him serve illegally as a volunteer throughout the Korean War. This is Jim Yoshida's own account of 2 wars and how he regained the admiration of his fellow Americans

Out of the frying pan : reflections of a Japanese American by Bill Hosokawa( Book )

1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"From vividly recollected experience, Out of the Frying Pan is a fresh, personal account of one the greatest injustices in 20th-century U.S. History. Bill Hosokawa, this country's leading journalist of Japanese descent, tells how he, his wife, and their infant child were herded into a U.S. World War II relocation camp in Wyoming."--BOOK JACKET. "After graduating from the University of Washington, young Bill Hosokawa gained prominence as a reporter for the Singapore Herald, the Shanghai Times, and the Far Eastern Review. However, his interment during World War II abruptly put his budding journalism career on indefinite hold. To his good fortune, he found work at the Denver Post after the war, where he rose through the ranks from copy desk chief to associate editor and editor of the editorial page. And despite his temporary imprisonment, Hosokawa managed to begin publishing his popular "From the Frying Pan" column (many selections are reproduced in this volume) in the Pacific Citizen in the early days of World War II, a column he wrote without interruption for over fifty years."--BOOK JACKET. "In Out of the Frying Pan, Hosokawa offers his insights on the gradual reassimilation of the Japanese American community into the mainstream of American life after the bitterness of interment. Bringing his narrative into the present, he examines with humor and insight the current place occupied by Japanese Americans in the larger culture of our nation."--BOOK JACKET
