Koji Ariyoshi was born on a Kona coffee plantation in 1914. After World War II broke out, he used his language skills in the U.S. Army and was assigned to China, where he met several of China's future leaders, including Mao Zedung.After returning to Hawai'i, Ariyoshi became the editor of the Honolulu Record, the voice of labor during the turbulent postwar conflicts between unions and Hawai'i's ruling elites. Following his 1951 arrest on charges of being a Communist, Ariyoshi spent the next year writing "My Thoughts for which I Stand Indicated" for the Record. The present volume draws from this series of weekly articles to create an energetic and thoughtful work chronicling a life lived at the center of events that transformed Hawai'i, America, China, and the world.
