Summary
  • "During World War II, the United States government forced thousands of people of Japanese ancestry to live in internment camps on American soil. Race, Rights and Reparation : Law and the Japanese American Internment was the first text to critically explore the legal, ethical, and social ramifications of their internment - and their subsequent successful movement for reparations in the 1980s. This authoritative Second Edition speaks to today's tension between national security and civil liberties through informative parallels between the wartime incarceration of Japanese Americans and individual rights and liberties post-9/11"--Page [4] of cover.
