This classic study offers a history of anti-Japanese prejudice in California, extending from the late 19th century to 1924, when an immigration act excluded Japanese from entering the United States. The book details the political climate that helped to set the stage for the incarceration of Japanese Americans during World War II and reveals the racism present among middle-class American progressives, labour leaders, and other presumably liberal groups.

The First Battle is the previously untold struggle for freedom, equality and full citizenship in America. This struggle was waged unconventionally behind the scenes in Hawaii during the two years leading up to World War II and the first several years of the war. It pitted fragile inter-ethnic relationships and untested nisei (second-generation American-born Japanese) leadership against the full weight of the United States government.

A mix of archival footage and historical recreations tells the story of the Japanese Hawaiians' efforts to maintain equal rights and fair treatment during World War II. Fearing that Japan's involvement in the war would stoke racial hatred, Americans of Japanese descent living in Hawaii effectively anticipated and countered the type of harsh treatment that forced Japanese-Americans on the U.S. mainland into internment camps.

In the last fifty years, debates have swirled over the question of national forgiveness. Using two examples, the land claims of the Oneida Indians and the claims of reparations for Japanese Americans interred during World War II, Brian Weiner suggests a way of thinking of past national mistakes. Arguing beyond collective "innocence" or "guilt, " Sins of the Parents offers a model of collective responsibility to deal with past mistakes in such a way as to reinvigorate our notion of citizenship. Drawing on the writings of Abraham Lincoln and the work of Hannah Arendt, Weiner offers a definition of political responsibility that at once defines citizenship and sidesteps the familial, racial, and ethnic questions that are often brought to the surface during debates of national apologies. An original contribution to social policy and ethics, Sins of the Parents will become an important contribution to the debate about what makes us Americans.
