Stas Margaronis reviewed Terminal Island: Lost Communities of Los Angeles Harbor in 2015 and was of the view that the authors, "take us back to the 1900’s when Terminal Island was a vacation resort and Bohemian colony" when "artists mingled with writers, military men exchanged ideas with scientists…" David L. Ulin, a columnist at Los Angeles Times commented that it is a "story marked by deep layers, contradictions, a story we don’t often like to tell ourselves." He also praised the meticulousness of authors, "Hirahara and Knatz are smart and detailed on this early history, framing the development of Terminal Island through the filter of the growth of Los Angeles itself. However, the idyllic era ended at the time of attack on Pearl Harbor by Japanese military strike, and the Japanese-American community had to lose their freedom, and livelihood." Ulin stated, "this is a brutal and disgusting chapter of American history goes without saying, and yet, Hirahara and Knatz treat it in a sober way. Their lack of overt emotion only gives more power to the telling, letting events and policies speak for themselves."
