Allegiance

Item # 153307.

By Kermit Roosevelt.

A sophisticated legal thriller that plunges readers into the debate within the US government surrounding the imprisonment of thousands of Japanese Americans during World War II. The novel plunges readers into the life of Caswell “Cash” Harrison, a young law student from a prominent Philadelphia family, with an idealistic view of government and a penchant to do what’s right. When the news breaks about the attack on Pearl Harbor, he accepts a clerkship with Supreme Court Justice Hugo Black as a way to serve his country, and never anticipates the political and criminal acts he comes upon in this ultimate bastion of justice. Up to now Cash has been in lockstep with what is expected of him. What he finds will alter not just his own future, but America’s.

Hardbound: 400 pp.
