Abstract

In 1908 the governments of Japan and the United States completed the final negotiations on an informal, non-binding “Gentlemen’s Agreement” to limit Japanese immigration to the United States. The one hundredth anniversary of the final “Gentlemen’s Agreement” in 2008 provides an appropriate moment to revisit these Agreements and reconsider their place in history.
