Reviews

“This book narrates – mostly in the form of eyewitness accounts – the hardships and painful experiences of Japanese Americans during their forcible evacuation and internment in World War II. ….This book is a distinct academic contribution….it portrays the tyranny of state power in detail, [and] it goes beyond the sphere of politics and describes the manner in which the suppression of civil liberty stimulated some Japanese Americans to realize educational growth and to contribute to the social and cultural development of the country of their birth.” – Gudrun Bühnemann, Professor, Department of Languages and Cultures of Asia, The University of Wisconsin-Madison
