Children of the Occupation

Walter Hamilton

A moving account of the lives of mixed-race children of occupied Japan. Children of the Occupation blends oral histories with an historical and political analysis of international race relations and immigration policy in North America and Australia. It highlights the little-known story of the thousands of children that resulted from the unions of Japanese women and Allied servicemen posted to Japan following the Second World War. This powerful narrative of loss, longing and reconnection is written by the ABC’s long-time Tokyo correspondent, Walter Hamilton.
