Comments Prisoners Without Trial: Japanese Americans in World War II

  • Lauren

    I've had this book on my shelf for a while, since my undergraduate days of majoring in history. It came up when I randomized my "to read" list so I decided to give it a go.It was relatively short and to the point, which I liked. My interest, as always in history, is the effect an event or time has on the people themselves. I would have liked more details about the camp and the experiences of the people who lived in them. Maybe the intent of this book was to be more of an overview, which I felt i [...]

    This book gives a clear chronology of the events that led up to internment to the final redress payments a couple of years ago. It also shows how racism and xenophobia from the 19th century caused the mass hysteria, and also examines if this could happen in the U.S. again. It was a quick, informative read, but I would have enjoyed more from the prospective of those who where interned.


  • Sarah Crawford

    This is another book on the internment of the Japanese Americans during World War II. The book goes into the background leading up to the internment, the internment itself, and what happened afterwards.As with my other reviews, I'll concentrate on things this book presents that I other books tend to miss entirely or gloss over. I'll put my comments on things in ( ) to distinguish them from what the author actually said.The history leading up to the internment is one basically of anti-Oriental pr [...]

    I think everyone has heard in passing about the Japanese Concentration camps that America set up after the bombings of Pearl Harbor but I for one was never taught about or really knew much about what these camps were or what happened to the people in the camps or anything really.After reading this book I understand where these camps where, what life was like in the camps, the questions that the US government faced these Japanese Americans with and how they responded to all of this. How would you [...]


  • Patrick

    This short, but very informative book is a great read. It illuminates the specific background, sequence of events, responsible people, and beliefs that surrounded the detainment of some 100,000+ Japanese Americans into concentration camps starting in 1942 and lasting until 1946. Daniels uses an authoritative and informed voice with plenty to say about all the people involved, both within and outside the camps. The massive contradiction of Japanese American soldiers serving in the highly decorate [...]


  • Fredrick Danysh

    A brief evaluation of American internment of Japanese-Americans during World War II. The author addresses the history of anti-Asian racism starting in the mid-1800s as well as reasons for the relocation of the Japanese-Americans. He discusses reasons for their release beginning in 1942 but ignores the 442nd "Go For Broke" Regiment when discussing Army participation and just focuses on the language school. He also address political aaftermathx. This was a superficial treatment of the internments [...]


  • Matt

    I read this book during my History of California class while in grad school was eye-opening, even (hell, especially) for someone who has lived in California for most of their lifetime. It speaks volumes about the mentality of the United States from the 1940s to present day


  • Jennifer Robinson

    I could not finish this book. I was looking for something with a little more story. Only gave it 4 stars because it is perfect for a history class or paper. Very informative, but little there to connect the reader to the issue.


  • Nicholas Vela

    A clear chronology of a blemish upon the history of America. Having read this in conjunction with other sources for a class on World War II in the Pacific, the events leading up to Executive Order 9066 are all shown here. A must read for anyone wanting to know about America's Internment Camps.
