Summary:
""In this exhaustively-researched and beautifully-written book, Onishi uncovers a hidden history of Afro-Asian radicalism and internationalism. He presents bold and generative arguments about the ways in which the affiliation of kindred spirits across the Pacific enabled anti-racist intellectuals and activists from Japan and the U.S. to forge a new philosophy of world history and formulate practical programs for liberation.""--George Lipsitz, author of How Racism Takes Place ""This fascinating and ground-breaking book offers a new window into the vital history of Afro-Asian solidarity agains
