This chapter addresses the transnational/cosmopolitan thrust of Yamashita’s writings. While fully acknowledging Yamashita’s Japanese American heritage the author shows how each narrative goes beyond identity politics into how migrant life and history creates hybrid human tapestries and demographies. This is to insist upon how in her writings the local indeed becomes the global.
