I Am an American: A True Story of Japanese Internment
Illustrated with black-and-white photographs. Young Shi Nomura was among the
120,000 American citizens who lost everything when he was sent by the U.S.
government to Manzanar, an interment camp in the California desert, simply
because he was of Japanese ancestry. "In clear and fascinating prose, Stanley
has set forth the compelling story of one of America's darkest times--the
internment of Japanese-Americans during World War II. His meticulously
researched volume is accompanied by numerous, fine period black-and-white
photographs...This eloquent account of the disastrous results of racial
prejudice stands as a reminder to us in today's pluralistic society."
