Few people can point to Okinawa on a map, yet this tiny island sitting between China and Japan was and continues to be one of the most crucial Asian nerve centers in all U.S. strategic defense. Ninety percent of all U.S. military forces in Japan are located on Okinawa, one of the Ryukyu Islands, and it was through these troops that the martial art of karate was exported to the U.S. In Okinawa: History of an Island People, noted Eastern affairs specialist George Kerr recounts the fascinating history of the island and its environs, from 1314 A.D. to the late twentieth century. First published in 1958, this edition features a new introduction and appendix by Okinawa history scholar Mitsugu Sakihara, making this the most comprehensive resource on the small, vital, and intriguing island of Okinawa.

My dissertation traces the way that the category of Okinawa developed into one that could be mobilized as a self-evident and naturally existing entity in relation to the process of Okinawa prefecture's establishment and incorporation into the Japanese nation-state. This process, which began in 1872, by the 1930s, successfully created a category, Okinawa, that conjured up an image of the 'South' that was both spatially and temporally removed from the time of modern Japan despite the prefecture's administratively equal status within the Japanese nation-state.
