Franklin D. Roosevelt by Roger Daniels( )

15 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 2,044 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Volume 2: Having guided the nation through the worst economic crises in its history. Franklin Delano Roosevelt by 1939 had turned much of his focus to a world at the brink of war. The second part of Roger Daniel's biography focuses on FDR's growing mastery in foreign affairs. Relying on FDR's own words to the American people and eyewitness accounts of the man and his accomplishments, Daniels reveals a chief executive orchestrating an immense wartime effort. Roosevelt had effective command of military and diplomatic information and unprecedented power over strategic military and diplomatic affairs. He directed the creation of an Arsenal of Democracy that armed the Allies, while inventing the United Nations to ensure a lasting postwar peace. FDR achieved these aims while expanding general prosperity, limiting inflation, and continuing liberal reform in the face of an increasingly conservative and hostile Congress. Although his death denied him the chance to see the war's end, events in the former year of the war assured him that the victory he had done so much to bring about would not be long delayed. A compelling reconsideration of Roosevelt the president and campaigner, The War Years, 1939-1945 provides new views and vivid insights about a towering figure - and six years that changed the world.--from dust jacket

The Asian American : the historical experience : essays by Norris Hundley( Book )

8 editions published between 1976 and 1983 in English and held by 487 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The essays in this volume look at Asian Americans, their ideas and ways of life, on their own terms, relating them to both Asian and United States history. Roger Daniels presents an overview of East Asian immigrants through a review of the literature by American historians. An essay by Stanford M. Lyman, which follows, analyzes San Francisco's Chinatown before 1910, and offers an interpretation in terms of sociology of conflict. Harry H. L. Kitano's essay, which employs the theory of "middleman minority," seeks to define how Japanese Americans fit into the American social system, by analyzing an example of labor unionization. Lee and Chang-su Houchin's essay on the Korean experience in the United States emphasizes the political ideologies and activities of this immigrant group. The essay by H. Brett Melendy and Gary R. Hess demonstrates that, although distinguishable ethnically from Chinese, Japanese and Koreans, East Indians and Filipinos came to the United States under similar circumstances and experienced the same white prejudice and economic victimization. Finally Shih-Shan H. Ts'ai's article summarizes Chinese historiography on the immigration dispute. This book contains extensive bibliographical references

The Japanese American cases : the rule of law in time of war by Roger Daniels( Book )

6 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 390 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"After Pearl Harbor, President Roosevelt, claiming a never documented "military necessity," ordered the removal and incarceration of 120,000 Japanese Americans during World War II solely because of their ancestry. As Roger Daniels movingly describes, almost all reluctantly obeyed their government and went peacefully to the desolate camps provided for them. Daniels, however, focuses on four Nisei, second-generation Japanese Americans, who, aided by a handful of lawyers, defied the government and their own community leaders by challenging the constitutionality of the government's orders. The 1942 convictions of three men--Min Yasui, Gordon Hirabayashi, and Fred Korematsu--who refused to go willingly were upheld by the Supreme Court in 1943 and 1944. But a woman, Mitsuye Endo, who obediently went to camp and then filed for a writ of habeas corpus, won her case. The Supreme Court subsequently ordered her release in 1944, following her two and a half years behind barbed wire. Neither the cases nor the fate of law-abiding Japanese attracted much attention during the turmoil of global warfare; in the postwar decades they were all but forgotten. Daniels traces how, four decades after the war, in an America whose attitudes about race and justice were changing, the surviving Japanese Americans achieved a measure of political and legal justice. Congress created a commission to investigate the legitimacy of the wartime incarceration. It found no military necessity, but rather that the causes were "race prejudice, war hysteria, and a failure of political leadership." In 1982 it asked Congress to apologize and award $20,000 to each survivor. A bill providing that compensation was finally passed and signed into law in 1988. There is no way to undo a Supreme Court decision, but teams of volunteer lawyers, overwhelmingly Sansei--third-generation Japanese Americans--used revelations in 1983 about the suppression of evidence by federal attorneys to persuade lower courts to overturn the convictions of Hirabayashi and Korematsu. Daniels traces the continuing changes in attitudes since the 1980s about the wartime cases and offers a sobering account that resonates with present-day issues of national security and individual freedom"--
