Lives of Young Koreans in Japan

Description

Examines the life experiences and identity formation of young third-generation Korean migrants in Japan, using the results of one hundred and fifty in-depth interviews. The study shows that these young people are distinctively different from mainland Koreans and from majority Japanese alike. It depicts their struggles to avoid and resist Japanese racism, the deep wounds and inner conflicts that result from those struggles, and the complex ethnic identity that emerges in the process.
