Synopses & Reviews
"A well-researched and well-written treatment of the subject."
"Scholars of American race relations will want to read this book. So will anyone interested in Hawaii's history or in the experiences of Japanese or Asian Americans. It will go far in putting to rest any residual notion that the WWII experiences of the Japanese Americans represented 'aberration' or 'hysterical' reaction to wartime exigencies."
—Franklin S. Odo, University of Hawaii at Manoa
"Okihiro's account is an important corrective to our understanding of the Japanese American Experience in World War II."
—The Hawaiian Journal of History
