The Japanese Community in Pre-War Britain: From Integration to Disintegration (Curzon Press, 2001)

Based on archival research and oral testimonies, and taking a close look at individual life stories, The Japanese Community in Pre-War Britain explores the origins of the community and its transformation. It compares the experience of the Japanese to that of other national groups through detailed examination of the community’s involvement in the arts, religion and sport, intermarriage, and the second generation.
