Reviews

"This is an excellent resource. . . . Users can profitably search America: History and Life for a wealth of articles about this event and its aftermath." --Reference Reviews

"This will be a valuable resource for a variety of audiences interested in Asian American history. Summing Up: Highly recommended." --Choice

"Was it 'military necessity, ' as the order invoked--or simply racism? Okihiro (international and public affairs, Columbia Univ.) makes a compelling case for the latter in this reference collecting topical, event, and biographical entries related to the internment of Japanese Americans during World War II. The work is supplemented by a host of primary source materials, including the heartbreaking photographs of the camps and testimony of internees at hearings leading to the Civil Liberties Act of 1988, in which a formal apology was issued. A chronology is provided. . . . A critical compendium documenting a shameful, often overlooked part of World War II history." --Library Journal

"This is an excellent, handy reference source on one of the less heroic but still vitally important aspects of American history. Recommended for all types of libraries." --Booklist
