About This Item

New York: G.P. Putnam's Sons, 1995. First Edition. Hardcover. Near fine/Near fine. Signed by Ellen Levine on the title page. The bitter experience of Japanese Americans illegally interned during World War II is told in the voices of those who were young at the time. It's a story of democracy ignored and racism triumphant; of homes invaded, businesses lost, and thousands of civilians herded behind barbed wire. Like the author's powerful Freedom's Children (1992) about young civil rights activists, this weaves individual oral histories with Levine's commentary, history, and analysis. Octavo: x, [i], 260 p. with textual photographs. Original blue paper-covered boards, with silver titles. A near fine copy in a near fine dust jacket.

Synopsis

Ellen S. Levine is a web producer, writer, editor, and consultant in marketing and publicity.
