The Betrayal of Japanese Americans During World War II
Sandler, Martin W. (Book - 2013)
Average Rating: 4 stars out of 5.

Item Details

While Americans fought for freedom and democracy abroad, fear and suspicion towards Japanese Americans swept the country after Japan's sneak attack on Pearl Harbor. Culling information from extensive, previously unpublished interviews and oral histories with Japanese American survivors of internment camps, Martin W. Sandler gives an in-depth account of their lives before, during their imprisonment, and after their release. Bringing readers inside life in the internment camps and explaining how a country that is built on the ideals of freedom for all could have such a dark mark on its history, this in-depth look at a troubling period of American history sheds light on the prejudices in today's world and provides the historical context we need to prevent similar abuses of power.

Great resource book - for this difficult period in American history after Pearl Harbor. Relates to current immigration issues and defining who is American - and, gives perspective to anti-Muslim sentiment after 9/11.
