In addition to providing the impetus for American entry into World War II, the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor triggered the forced removal of 110,000 Japanese Americans from the West Coast to remote camps in barren inland areas. The authors in this volume illustrate the arguments in favor of relocation, as well as provide personal experiences of the evacuation, imprisonment and interrogation by federal authorities, the day-to-day life in the relocation camps, and reentry into American society following the closure of the camps.
