Additional Information In lieu of an abstract, here is a brief excerpt of the content: Immigration to Hawaii,by Wayne Patterson. University of Hawaii Press, Maps, appendix, bibliography, glossary, index. The Korean Frontier in America is a more interesting and more important book than its somewhat misleading title suggests.
Yes, it does deal specifically with the immigration of Koreans to Hawaii around the turn of the century.
But to his credit, Patterson has looked beyond this narrow topic to some much more significant issues concerning the U. Seven thousand Koreans immigrated to Hawaii between and This is a very small number when compared to the fifty thousand Chinese and the nearly one hundred thousand Japanese that made the same journey during the years preceding the annexation of Korea by Japan.
Though these Korean immigrants and their descendents did make important contributions to Hawaii, their story can hardly be considered more than a footnote to U. Patterson uses the question of Korean immigration to Hawaii as the lens through which to examine several other problems: The immigration of Koreans to Hawaii is an interesting and useful angle from which to view these problems; and The Korean Frontier in America is really more concerned with these larger issues.
It is unfortunate that there will be those who will not consult this book because of its apparently narrow focus. In short, this is an ambitious, though only partly successful work.
I found much of what I read to be insightful and certainly a welcome addition to the body of literature about the final years of the Yi dynasty. I do, however, have several concerns about this book. Obviously to reduce a manuscript of that length to pages requires that large amounts of material be paraphrased or deleted.
This explains in part the too frequent notes such as "unsupported," "needs documentation," or "unsubstantiated" that I kept making to myself as I read this work. There is no doubt that the published version is impressively more readable as a result of the editing, but it cannot help but suffer from the reduction of information, discussion, and documentation.
Beyond this general concern I must mention two specific items to which I took exception: I do not take exception to his argument that Allen went beyond his written instructions, and even had knowledge of "illegal" matters.
But I find it odd that Patterson is so incredulous that activities and attitudes such as these took place. And it is also abundantly clear that the governments of Hawaii and the United States themselves acted very differently and often in violation of established laws and practices in regards to the immigration of Koreans, Japanese, and Chinese to Hawaii than they did to the immigration of those same peoples to the mainland United States.
