About the book:

Just two months after Pearl Harbor, Franklin Delano Roosevelt issued an Executive Order to confine more than 100,000 Japanese Americans to makeshift camps for the remainder of World War II. With no crime other than their own ethnicity, these citizens, many of whom had had lived peacefully in the U.S. for generations, were forced from their homes and stripped of their jobs and property. Those with dual citizenship struggled with divided loyalties, while others worked to re-create their colorful traditions inside the desolate walls of the camps. Page Smith accompanies his thorough analysis of what happened and why with a study of Japanese-U.S. relations and a history of Japanese immigrants in America.
