Summary
In the 1960s and 1970s, the United States and Japan went through massive welfare expansions that sparked debates about citizenship. At the heart of these disputes stood African Americans and Koreans. This book offers a comparative study of African American welfare activism in Los Angeles and Koreans' campaigns for welfare rights in Kawasaki. In working-class and poor neighbourhoods in both locations, African Americans and Koreans sought not only to be recognised as citizens but also to become legitimate constituting members of communities
