About this product
- DescriptionDuring World War II, 110,000 citizens and resident aliens of Japanese ancestry were banished from their homes and confined behind barbed wire for two and a half years. This book analyzes the experiences of that part of the detained group - some 18,000 in total - whose response was to renounce America as a homeland.
- Author BiographyDorothy Swaine Thomas (1899 - 1977) was an American sociologist and economist. She was the 42nd President of the American Sociological Association and the first woman in that role. Richard Shigeaki Nishimoto (1904 - 1956) is probably the most cited Issei author who wrote on the camps in English--specifically on the WRA camp known as Tule Lake. Educated in both Japan and the USA, Nishimoto distinguished himself as the only Issei to be employed full-time as a researcher for the Japanese American Evacuation and Resettlement Study (JERS).
