"Well over half of a century ago, several hundred thousand Americans were quietly taken from their West Coast homes, their land, their businesses and placed in concentration camps in remote sections of the West. The reason: "National Security." It took a long time for a popular book to appear about these Japanese Americans who were rounded up after Pearl Harbor and interned, some for nearly four years, for no cause but national origin. America's Concentration Camps provides an overview of the Japanese American removal and incarceration, outlining the chain of events that led to the incarceration, the main story lines of incarceration, and a discussion of its meaning and aftermath."
Concludes with a Chronology of the Evacuation and the WRA (War Relocation Authority) Program, a Bibliography, Endnotes, and Index.
