To announce the publication of Japanese and Chinese Immigrant Activists written by Josephine Fowler
Rutgers University Press is pleased to announce the publication of Japanese and Chinese Immigrant Activists written by Josephine Fowler. Drawing on multilingual correspondence between left-wing and party members and other primary sources, such as records from branches of the Japanese Workers Association and the Chinese Nationalist Party, Fowler shows how pressures from the Comintern for various sub-groups of the party to unite as an "American" working class were met with resistance. The book also challenges longstanding stereotypes about the relationships among the Communist Party in the United States, the Comintern, and the Soviet Party.

Fowler's contributions will provide a critical reference point to all interested in the history of Asian Americans, labor activism, and international politics for years to come."-Chris Friday, Professor of History, Western Washington University
