From 1983 until 1990, Yasuko I. Takezawa pursued graduate study at the University of Washington and engaged in field work in Seattle's Japanese American community. Breaking the Silence, a version of which was published in Japan in 1994, is the result of these years of research. Like Patricia Zavella's Women's Work and Chicano Families and Sylvia Yanagisako's Transforming the Past, this is a book by an anthropologist that should capture the interest of social historians.
