From the Introduction: Communication is the name we give to the countless ways that humans have of keeping in touch-not just to words and music, pictures and print, but also to cries and whispers, nods and becks, postures and plumages: to every move that catches someone's eye and every sound that resonates upon another ear. Human communication, as the saying goes, is a clash of symbols; and it covers a multitude of signs. But it is more than media and messages, information and persuasion; it also meets a deeper need and serves a higher purpose. Whether clear or garbled, tumultuous or silent, deliberate or fatally inadvertent, communication is the ground of meeting and the foundation of community. It is, in short, the essential human connection

During World War II, 110,000 citizens and resident aliens of Japanese ancestry were banished from their homes and confined behind barbed wire for two and a half years. This comprehensive work surveys the historical origins, political characteristics, and legal consequences of that calamitous episode. The authors describe the myths and suspicions about Orientals on the West Coast and trace the influence of racial bigotry in the evacuation and in the court cases growing out of it. A theory is advanced to account for the administrative and legal decisions which initiated and concluded this calamity. Finally, the authors analyze the principal constitutional issues involved in the evacuation and their implications for the future

"En otro tiempo se creía que la comunicación humana estaba confinada al terreno del lenguaje: palabras dichas, palabras escritas.Las manifestaciones oficiales de la humanidad. Pero estudios recientes han descubierto los desatendidos mundos del discurso no oficial que subyacen a los sucesos de la vida cotidiana. El lenguaje del cuerpo, las expresiones gestuales y faciales, los tonos de voz, el uso del espacio personal, las vestimentas, los rituales de acercamiento, evitación y saludo, el mirar y no mirar, el tocar: éstas son algunas de las formas en que nos comunicamos constantemente unos con otros y que indican si compartimos o no una cultura. Los autores exploran estos nuevos descubrimientos y discuten por qué y cómo estos procesos son tan importantes para nosotros como seres humanos. Luego, amplían su campo para examinar las formas más extendidas en las que se expresa la comunidad humana, entre ellas, el amor en todas sus manifestaciones y la danza: la manifestación original de la solidaridad humana." --Contratapa
