A book review essay.

Choose one book between John Okada’s No-No Boy (1956 novel) and Tessa Morris-Suzuki’s Exodus to North Korea (2007 history) and write a review essay to either one they read. Students who choose No-No Boy are expected to discuss the socio-historical issues of race during and after WWII in the US (e.g. racial violence and discrimination, tensions between citizenship and national identity, the history of internment camps in a global context, etc.) Other students who writes on Exodus to North Korea will be asked to discuss about the continuities of colonialism in the postcolonial Japan through the lens of Zainichi (ethnic Koreans in Japan) history.
