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

3 editions published between 1969 and 1974 in English and held by 713 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

The Kikuchi diary; chronicle from an American concentration camp; the Tanforan journals of Charles Kikuchi by Charles Kikuchi( Book )

6 editions published between 1973 and 1993 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"How can we fight fascism," wrote Charles Kikuchi in June, 1942, "if we allow its doctrines to become part of government policies?" Kikuchi was one of the American-born majority of more than 100,000 Japanese Americans who were moved from Pacific Coast states to government relocation centers in 1942 out of declared "military necessity." Presented here is the absorbing diary Kikuchi kept from December 7, 1941, to September, 1942, shortly before and during the time he and his family were forced to live in a converted horse stall at Tanforan Race Track. Kikuchi was a twenty-six-year-old graduate student in social welfare at the University of California when war broke out, and his wry observations provide an alternative to both the official view of relocation and the uninformed outrage of many of its present-day critics
