From the Land of Hibiscus
EDITOR: Yong-ho Choe
PUBLISHER: University of Hawaii Press
DATE PUBLISHED: November 2006
NUMBER OF PAGES: 287
DIMENSIONS: 9.1 x 6.1 x 1.1 inches Buy it at Amazon.com
FULL TITLE: From the Land of Hibiscus: Koreans in Hawaii: 1903-1950
TITLE EXPLANATION: The hibiscus is both the national flower of Korea and the state flower of Hawaii.
PUBLISHERS DESCRIPTION: From the Land of Hibiscus traces the story of Koreans in Hawaii from their first arrival to the eve of Korea’s liberation in 1945. Using newly uncovered evidence, it challenges previously held ideas on the social origins of immigrants. It also examines their political background, the role of Christian churches in immigration, the image of Koreans as depicted in the media, and, above all, nationalist activities. Different approaches to waging the nationalist struggle uncover the causes of feuds that often bitterly divided the Korean community. Finally, the book provides the first in-depth studies of the nationalist activities of Syngman Rhee, the Korean National Association, and the United Korea Committee

FULL TITLE: The Koreans in HawaiI: A Pictorial History, 1903-2003 (A Latitude 20 Book)
PUBLISHERS DESCRIPTION: The Koreans in Hawaii: A Pictorial History, 1903-2003, brings together hundreds of photographs to tell the powerful story of the people who have shaped the Korean immigrant experience in America over the past one hundred years. Although Koreans faced the same hardships and barriers as other East Asian immigrants in the New World, the story of their migration, settlement, and assimilation into American society has received relatively little attention. This volume not only commemorates the centennial of Koreans in Hawaii, but also offers readers an unprecedented look at the rich history of a community that continues to develop and change to this day. The photographs, which illuminate and complement writings and oral histories found elsewhere, provide insight into Hawaii's Korean immigrant community, politics, and everyday life. They reveal the struggles and successes of the first and subsequent generations, allowing viewers to connect with the past. Together with chapter introductions, the wide range of photographs (many only recently discovered in archives and family albums) represents an engaging record that uncovers the deep roots of Korean Americans in Hawaii.

FULL TITLE: The Ilse: First-Generation Korean Immigrants in Hawaii, 1903-1973 (Hawaii Studies on Korea)
PUBLISHERS'S DESCRIPTION: Although much has been written about early Chinese and Japanese laborers in Hawaii, until now no comprehensive work has been published on first-generation Korean immigrants, the ilse. Making extensive use of primary source material from Korea, Japan, the continental U.S., and Hawaii, the author weaves a compelling social history of the Korean experience in Hawaii from 1903 to 1973 as seen primarily through the eyes of the ilse. Japanese surveillance records, student journals, and U.S. intelligence reports provide an "inner history" of the Korean community.
