    1. I read this book about the internment of the Japanese in United States during WWII because I was very interested in the phenomenon based on my readings about the Canadian Japanese were also interned during WWII. I had hoped that my understanding of what had happened in my country would be greatly enhanced if would be able to compare it to what had happened in the U.S. Ms. Weglyn's book proved to be everything that I had hoped it would be and more. Their internment in the US was significantly sho [...]

    2. Michi Nishiura Weglyn, 1996The book starts out with photos relating to the interment and reproductions of some newspaper articles relating to the Tule Lake riot. (Why books don't include more reproductions like this is a puzzlement to me.)The introduction should definitely be read and is very hard-hitting. Chapter 1 deals with "The Secret Munson Report." This relates to the Munson report which was ordered by FDR prior to Pearl Harbor and concluded that there was no threat from the Japanese Ameri [...]

    3. I’ve probably read 30 books on the Nikkei internment of World War II, half of them being library books I’d checked out.

    4. Though difficult to follow and, at times, downright boring, this book is probably one of the best on Japanese Internment. It delves into several aspects of internment life and the various government acts that dictated the lives of over 110,000 Japanese Americans. I give it four stars, not for entertainment value, but for information.

    5. Learned about the forced relocation and internment by the United States government in 1942 of approximately 110,000 Japanese Americans and Japanese residing along the Pacific coast of the United States to camps called "War Relocation Camps," in the wake of Imperial Japan's attack on Pearl Harbor. It was quite interesting but at times too descriptive and horrific.
