Japanese-American evacuation and resettlement : during World War II by Dorothy Swaine Thomas( Book )

2 editions published between 1969 and 1974 in English and held by 710 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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. In 1942, a group of social scientists at the University of California, Berkeley undertook a study of the evacuation, detention, and resettlement of the Japanese minority in the United States. This study looked at these events through the lenses of sociology, social anthropology, social psychology, political science, and economics. The study aimed to record and analyze the changes in behavior, attitudes, and patterns of social adjustment and interaction of the people to whom these policies and regulations had been applied. The information for what became known as the University of California, Berkeley Japanese American Evacuation and Resettlement Study was gathered by trained observers who were themselves participating and reacting to the events under observation, both Japanese Americans who were interned, and "Caucasian" staff members. Each kept detailed journals, appended by any documents that could be obtained. When hostilities ceased, work began on analyzing and organizing the resulting data. The first volume addresses the "Spoilage" resulting from evacuation and detention, including Japanese immigrants who returned to Japan, Japanese Americans who relinquished their American citizenship, and those stigmatized as "disloyal" by their captors or comrades. The second volume addresses the "Salvage" of those interned persons whose status was improved by resettlement in the East and Middle West, and those who returned after participating in the war effort. The final volume, "Prejudice, war, and the Constitution" surveys the historical origins, political characteristics, and legal consequences of that calamitous episode, describing myths and suspicions about Japanese-Americans, tracing the influence of racial bigotry in the evacuation, and the court cases growing out of it

Rabbit in the moon by Emiko Omori( Visual )

7 editions published between 1999 and 2015 in English and held by 256 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A documentary/memoir about the lingering effects of the World War II internment of the Japanese American community. Visually stunning and emotionally compelling, the film examines issues that ultimately created deep rifts within the Japanese American community, reveals the racist subtext of the loyalty questionnaire and exposes the absurdity of the military draft within the camps. These testimonies are linked by the filmmakers' own experiences in the camps and placed in a larger historical context by the director

The spoilage by Dorothy Swaine Thomas( Book )

1 edition published in 1946 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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. No more blatant violation of civil rights has ever been decreed by an American president, yet so strong were the currents of bigotry and war time hysteria that effective political opposition was impossible. However, a group of University of California social scientists, sensing the enormity of the outrage, organized in 1942 to record and analyze the causes, legal and social consequences, and long-term effects of the detention program. The Spoilage, one of a series of books which resulted, analyzes the experiences of that part of the detained group-some 18,000 in total-whose response was to renounce America as a homeland; it shows the steps by which these "disloyal" citizens were inexorably pushed toward the disaster of denationalization. Essentially the result of years of research by participant observers of Japanese ancestry, it is a factual record of enduring value to the student of America's troubled ethnic relations
