Description: By the end of World War I the Hawaiian Islands had become what a Japanese guidebook called a "Japanese village in the Pacific, " with Japanese immigrant workers making up nearly half the work force on the Hawaiian sugar plantations. In early 1920 Japanese sugar cane workers, faced with spiraling living expenses, defiantly struck for a wage increase to $1.25 per day. Although the strikers eventually capitulated, the Hawaiian territorial government, working closely with the planters, cracked down on the strike leaders. And to end dependence on Japanese immigrant labor, the planters lobbied hard in Washington to lift restrictions on the immigration of Chinese workers. Eventually, Duus demonstrates, this effort led to the passage of the so-called Japanese Exclusion Act of 1924, an event that cast a long shadow into the future.

Drawing on both Japanese- and English-language materials, many heretofore unpublished, this richly detailed narrative focuses on the key actors in the strike: Tsutsumi Noboru, firebrand strike leader; Fred Makino, editor of a leading Japanese-language newspaper in Hawaii; and Walter Dillingham, the influential head of one of the dominant companies in the Hawaiian economy. Its dramatic conclusions will have broad implications for further research in Asian American studies, labor history, and immigration history.
