Book cover
Immigration and Politics in the Caribbean
Japanese and Other Immigrants in the Dominican Republic
Valentina Peguero
Book review:
"A study of one of the more obscure communities in the multicultural Caribbean, the Japanese who immigrated to the Dominican Republic in the 1950s, Peguero situates this small wave of migration--1,320 Japanese between 1956-1959--within the wider immigration policy of the dictator Rafael Trujillo, who barred non-white migrants. She describes daily life in the agricultural "colonies" where the Japanese migrants were settled---strategically located near the border with Haiti, to create a "buffer zone"--the difficulties of assimilation and acculturation, and the anti-Japanese violence that broke out after Trujillo's death in 1961."
