Years of Infamy: The Untold Story of America's Concentration Camps
By Michi Nishiura Weglyn. Introduction by James A. Michener.
This is the first comprehensive book about the World War II incarceration written by a Nisei. Thorough and fact-laden research illustrates that the claim that the incarceration had been a "military necessity" was false, and that racism and governmental ineptitude were the driving factors behind this travesty of American justice. Weglyn’s book provided a wealth of factual information that caused the book to be dubbed the “Bible of the Redress Movement.”
