Traditionally, it has been widely believed that these children were stigmatized and that they faced severe problems in adjusting to the realities of living in Japanese society.

Drawing on his long-term fieldwork in one of the special schools set up to receive these children, this book is the first to challenge these ideas. Goodman argues that the convergence of several factors--particularly parental status and a powerful new political rhetoric stressing internationalization--is making these returnee children the vanguard of a new social elite.
