Japanese Americans in World War II by Donald Teruo Hata
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Like its predecessors, the third edition of "Japanese Americans and World War II" provides students of US, Asian American, World War II history with essential but too-often overlooked (at least in most standard US survey textbooks) information on what may well be one of the most disgraceful episodes in American history. Yet as painful as the details of the so-called internment of American citizens and legal immigrants was, "Japanese Americans in World War II" also chronicles the courage and resourcefulness of the Nikkei, during their imprisonment and in the years that followed, never abandoning the United States but demanding the respect they had earned -- even as they struggled within the Japanese American community to define exactly what "citizenship" meant and how best to ask for -- and get -- the official apology they had waited so long to hear. Completely updated and including a complete and expanded bibliography, this highly readable and affordable little pamphlet is a perfect supplement to the US survey and a variety of more-specialised courses.
