Looking Like the Enemy: Japanese Mexicans, the Mexican State, and US Hegemony

Looking Like the Enemy: Japanese Mexicans, the Mexican State, and US Hegemony

Mark Overmyer-Velázquez of the University of Connecticut reviews Looking Like the Enemy: Japanese Mexicans, the Mexican State, and US Hegemony, by Jerry García . As the first full-length study of Japanese in Mexico in English, the book builds on a growing scholarship that relates the history of Latin America from the perspective of non-Catholic and non-indigenous minority populations. These renderings from the periphery help readers to better understand nineteenth and early-twentieth century nation-state formations.
