During World War II some 120,000 Japanese Americans were forcibly removed from their homes and detained in concentration camps in several states. These Japanese Americans lost millions of dollars in property and were forced to live in so-called "assembly centers" surrounded by barbed wire fences and armed sentries. In this insightful and groundbreaking work, Brian Hayashi reevaluates the three-year ordeal of interred Japanese Americans. Using previously undiscovered documents, he examines the forces behind the U.S. government's decision to establish internment camps. His conclusion: the motives of government officials and top military brass likely transcended the standard explanations of racism, wartime hysteria, and leadership failure. Among the other surprising factors that played into the decision, Hayashi writes, were land development in the American West and plans for the American occupation of Japan. What was the long-term impact of America's actions? While many historians have explored that question, Hayashi takes a fresh look at how U.S. concentration camps affected not only their victims and American civil liberties, but also people living in locations as diverse as American Indian reservations and northeast Thailand.

"Countless books and magazine articles have been written about the gross injustice of Japanese-American internment during World War II, and how hard and degrading life was in the camps. But relatively little has been published about what happened after the nightmare ended. In fact, there's a positive story to be told--in the context of that regrettable period in American history--and Beyond the Camps captures it through interviews with former internees and their children."--dust jacket.

  • Contents and Abstracts1Bainbridge Island Beginnings, 1912-1923 chapter abstractThis chapter covers the historical roots of James Omura's family in Japan and its uneven development and tragic division on Bainbridge Island, Washington. It emphasizes anti-Japanese discrimination on Bainbridge Island and explores the challenging experiences of Omura's family members in both the United States and Japan. Finally, the chapter portrays Omura's primary school education and his active and successful participation in baseball. 2Pacific Northwest Coming of Age, 1923-1933 chapter abstractThis chapter charts James Omura's departure from his home at age thirteen to work in the Alaska canned salmon industry. It traces his junior high school experience living in Pocatello, Idaho, his work there as a "schoolboy" to support himself, and his fledgling experience in journalism and starring role on Pocatello's championship American Legion baseball team. The chapter concludes with Omura's high school experiences at both Bainbridge High School and Seattle's Broadway High School, from which he graduated in 1932, and spotlights his activities in journalism and sports, along with his mounting difficulties in social situations and interpersonal relations. 3Dateline California, 1933-1940 chapter abstractThis chapter details the development of Omura's career in journalism, first as the short-tenured editor of the Los Angeles-based New Japanese American News, and then, in San Francisco, as the editor of the New World Daily, coeditor of the New World Sun, and columnist for the Japanese American News, edited by Larry Tajiri. It also provides a window into life within these two cities during the Great Depression, especially in the Japanese American community, with emphasis on the sphere of Japanese American journalism. This chapter depicts the origins and intensification of Omura's feud with the Japanese American Citizens League (JACL) leadership (particularly Saburo Kido). In addition, the chapter narrates Omura's cross-country odyssey as a train-hopping tramp, and his return to employment as a migrant agricultural laborer in Washington and California, and later as a packer and buyer in San Francisco's floral industry. 4Showdown in San Francisco, 1940-1942 chapter abstractThis chapter discusses Omura's creation and operation of Current Life, a magazine devoted to Nisei arts, literature, and politics, for which his wife, Caryl Omura, served as business manager and publicist. It also spotlights Japan's attack on Pearl Harbor and its impact upon the Japanese American community within the San Francisco Bay Area. The chapter also deals with Omura's role in the political struggle among Japanese Americans over what position to take on the governmental decision to exclude Nikkei from the West Coast and incarcerate them in inland detention centers. Omura urged protest and resistance, while the Japanese American Citizens League (JACL) leadership and its allies advocated accommodation and cooperation. The JACL leaders obsequiously testified to this effect at the Tolan Committee hearings, while Omura's testimony criticized the JACL for misleading the Japanese American community and scored the impending U.S. policy of stripping wartime Nikkei of their civil rights. 5Denver Disputes and Concentration Camp Dissent, 1942-1944 chapter abstractThis chapter contains Omura's resettlement to Denver, including his establishment of a free employment service for Nikkei resettlers and his 1942-43 journalistic contributions to two free-zone Japanese American newspapers in Denver, the Colorado Times and the Rocky Nippon/Shimpo. The core of the chapter deals with Omura's continuing skirmish with the Japanese American Citizens League (JACL) leaders, especially Mike and Joe Grant Masaoka. In addition, the chapter reviews the 1942-43 anti-JACL dissent, protest, and resistance that occurred within select War Relocation Authority (WRA)-detention camps, particularly the Heart Mountain camp in Wyoming. 6Rocky Mountain Resistance, 1944 chapter abstractThis chapter discusses Omura's four-month editorship of the Rocky Shimpo and the series of editorials he wrote in support of the organized draft resistance movement at the Heart Mountain Relocation Center, which led to his removal as the newspaper's editor by the U.S. government. It also depicts Omura's 1944 indictment and imprisonment on the grounds of his being a coconspirator with the leaders of the Heart Mountain Fair Play Committee to aid and abet violation of the Selective Service laws, and his later acquittal on November 1, 1944, from this charge by a federal court in Cheyenne, Wyoming. Finally, the chapter treats Omura's allegation that Japanese American Citizens League (JACL) leader Minoru Yasui was a government informer, who along with the JACL-oriented editorial staff of the Heart Mountain Sentinel newspaper was determined to see Omura imprisoned for his journalistic support of the draft resistance movement at Heart Mountain. 7Down and Out in Denver, 1944-1945 chapter abstractThis brief chapter serves to dramatize the degree to which Omura's wartime actions, including his trial for conspiracy to frustrate the military draft, rendered him a pariah in the Denver Japanese American community. He was not only stripped of his journalistic vocation but also virtually blackballed from any employment connected with the Denver Japanese American community.

Among the fiercest opponents of the mass incarceration of Japanese Americans during World War II was journalist James "Jimmie" Matsumoto Omura. In his sharp-penned columns, Omura fearlessly called out leaders in the Nikkei community for what he saw as their complicity with the U.S. government's unjust and unconstitutional policies-particularly the federal decision to draft imprisoned Nisei into the military without first restoring their lost citizenship rights. In 1944, Omura was pushed out of his editorship of the Japanese American newspaper Rocky Shimpo, indicted, arrested, jailed, and forced to stand trial for unlawful conspiracy to counsel, aid, and abet violations of the military draft. He was among the first Nikkei to seek governmental redress and reparations for wartime violations of civil liberties and human rights. In this memoir, which he began writing towards the end of his life, Omura provides a vivid account of his early years: his boyhood on Bainbridge Island; summers spent working in the salmon canneries of Alaska; riding the rails in search of work during the Great Depression; honing his skills as a journalist in Los Angeles and San Francisco. By the time of the attack on Pearl Harbor, Omura had already developed a reputation as one of the Japanese American Citizens League's most adamant critics, and when the JACL leadership acquiesced to the mass incarceration of American-born Japanese, he refused to remain silent, at great personal and professional cost. Shunned by the Nikkei community and excluded from the standard narrative of Japanese American wartime incarceration until later in life, Omura seeks in this memoir to correct the "cockeyed history to which Japanese America has been exposed." Edited and with an introduction by historian Arthur A. Hansen, and with contributions from Asian American activists and writers Frank Chin, Yosh Kuromiya, and Frank Abe, Nisei Naysayer provides an essential, firsthand account of Japanese American wartime resistance.

"The third in the series of books by Ishii examining the history of family members that resided in America before, during, and right after World War II"--Vamp & Tramp Booksellers' website, viewed on June 20, 2014.
"The back of the 3rd book, For Seventy Years: Loyal to My Family, is based on the Loyalty Test on Japanese internees during the war. This government-issued questionnaire (February 1943) was taken by all adult internees in the camps to verify that they forswear allegiance or obedience to the Japanese emperor and willing to serve in the United States military. This created a tension between the two generations; the first who were born in Japan and could not become American citizens and the second who were naturally American citizens by being born in the U.S. The historical documents cause the viewers to imagine the complex feelings of many Japanese-Americans who lived through the era would have. The front of this book is a parallel response to the complex history on a personal level. With the questionnaire beneath the family related documents; birth certificates, area map of Tacoma, WA where they lived, midwives' names from the city directory and so on, it obscures the truth whether my family members were loyal or disloyal to the U.S. from myself as a researcher"--Artist's statement, viewed at Vamp & Tramp Booksellers' website, viewed on June 20, 2014.
