Achieving the impossible dream : how Japanese Americans obtained redress by Mitchell T Maki( Book )

5 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 622 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Redress Movement refers to efforts to obtain the restitution of civil rights, an apology, and/or monetary compensation from the U.S. government during the six decades that followed the World War II mass removal and confinement of Japanese Americans. Early campaigns emphasized the violation of constitutional rights, lost property, and the repeal of anti-Japanese legislation. 1960s activists linked the wartime detention camps to contemporary racist and colonial policies. In the late 1970s three organizations pursued redress in court and in Congress, culminating in the passage of the Civil Liberties Act of 1988, providing a national apology and individual payments of $20,000 to surviving detainees

Generations and identity : the Japanese American by Harry H. L Kitano( Book )

3 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 68 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The story of people of Japanese descent in the United States is told in its historic context. The Japanese came to America with cultural values that differed greatly from the mainstream U.S. society. They were also set apart by appearance. Conflict between Japan and the United States exacerbated the problems between the Japanese Americans and the American majority, but Japanese Americans eventually won acceptance and the promise of redress for incarceration during World War ii. An underlying theme of this volume is that of change, since the Japanese American experience reflects the change that is essential to U.S. society. Another theme is that of diversity. Japanese Americans, who once were a relatively homogeneous group, now represent American diversity as the succeeding generations have found different American environments. A final theme is that diversity and change go together in broader social and historic contexts that cannot be ignored. The following chapters explore the Japanese American experience: (1) "Introduction"; (2) "Background of Immigration"; (3) "Up to World War ii"; (4) "The Wartime Evacuation (1942-1945)"; (5) "Closing of the Camps: The Immediate Post War Era"; (6) "The Postwar Period"; (7) "The Community: Its Culture"; (8) "The Community: Its Organization"; (9) "The Community: Its Families"; (10) "Hawaii"; (11) "Identity and Generations"; (12) "Present Status"; and (13) "Summary, Conclusions." Information pertaining specifically to education appears in chapter 4 (page 47) and chapter 12 (pages 180-184). Each chapter contains a bibliography. (Contains 24 tables.) (Sld)
