Established in 1929, Pacific Citizen is a newspaper published by the Japanese American Citizens League. Larry S. Tajiri was editor through World War II until 1952, and his wife Guyo worked at his side. They made the newspaper an extraordinary forum for well-articulated liberal and progressive views on politics, civil rights, and democracy. Robinson (history, U. of Quebec, Canada) has brought together selected writings and offers biographical and contextual support. This is a richly rewarding compendium documenting an important era and bringing attention to the contributions of two leading figures in Nisei political life.
