"Lamentation as History is a pioneering study that will serve as a catalyst for the burgeoning research on Japan's "resident Korea" population. As an ambitious and stimulating inquiry into the relationship between literary and legal struggles in late twentieth-century Japan, it is a work deserving a wide readership."óJournal of Japanese Studies
This book traces the emergence and evolution of a discourse of minority identity within Japan’s Korean community through its examination of their literary narratives and political struggles over the past three decades.
