Summary

While Americans fought for freedom and democracy abroad, they shamefully denied those rights at home to Japanese Americans. Martin W. Sandler ushers readers into a time of fear and suspicion that 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 Culling information from extensive, previously unpublished interviews and oral histories with Japanese American survivors of internment camps, Sandler gives an in-depth account of their lives before, during their imprisonment, and after their release. He also follows the higly decorated Nisei soliders who did so much to help win the war. 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.
