Explorations in Sights and Sounds
In 1987, the Smithsonian Institution, as part of its observance of the bicentennial of the Constitution, held an exhibit that traced the history of Japanese immigrants and their descendants in the United States. This book, which commemorates the exhibit, consists chiefly of black-and-white photographs, brief notes, and a detailed chronology of the Japanese in this country from 1806, when eight shipwrecked sailors arrived in Hawaii, to 1987, when Senator Daniel K. Inouye (Hawaii) presided over the joint House and Senate hearings into the Iran-Contra affair.
