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.

"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could not become American citizens and the second who were naturally American citizens by being born in the U.S. The historical documents cause the viewers to imagine the complex feelings of many Japanese-Americans who lived through the era would have.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.

19. Letters to memory [2017]

x, 176 pages : illustrations (some color) ; 23 cm
Karen is a giant in Asian American literature, and this new work is a skeleton key for her fiction, positioning it in relationship to her family history and her wide-ranging curiosity, and offering fans a glimpse into the sources of her imaginative workWhile this is the story of the internment and its repercussions for the Yamashita family, Karen's formal choices, including using different disciplines as lenses for ideas (forgiveness, debt, civil rights) make it an expansive work of deep moral seriousnessDocumentary instincts are a part of Karen's writing (most visible in I Hotel and Circle K Cycles) but historical grounding and issues of migration, integration, separation (voluntary and not), and community making are present in all. Despite the gravity of the subject, Karen is reliably a funny writer, and one whose voice (casual, disarming, a tug on the sleeve) animates these storiesThe use of primary source materials makes the characters come alive?we can see their handwriting, their faces, their paintings. The book links back to an extensive archive of correspondence, photography, and other holdings, making the book far larger than what's on the page.
