Japanese Americans: From Relocation to Redress
Sandra C. Taylor, Harry H. L. Kitano
University of Washington Press, May 1, 2013 - HISTORY - 264 pages
This revised and expanded edition of Japanese Americans: From Relocation to Redress presents the most complete and current published account of the Japanese American experience from the evacuation order of World War II to the public policy debate over redress and reparations. A chronology and comprehensive overview of the Japanese American experience by Roger Daniels are underscored by first person accounts of relocations by Bill Hosokawa, Toyo Suyemoto Kawakami, Barry Saiki, Take Uchida, and others, and previously undescribed events of the interment camps for enemy aliens by John Culley and Tetsuden Kashima. The essays bring us up to the U.S. government s first redress payments, made forty eight years after the incarceration of Japanese Americans began.
The combined vision of editors Roger Daniels, Sandra C. Taylor, and Harry H. L. Kitano in pulling together disparate aspects of the Japanese American experience results in a landmark volume in the wrenching experiment of American democracy.
