Rate this:
The WRA historian's account of the people who were evacuated and of the factors which determined their wartime exclusion from their homes on the Pacific Coast. Beginning with a brief chapter on two early-17th century voyages from Japan to the New World and scattered arrivals of Japanese castaways during the 19th century, this report continues with a detailed treatment of the mass migrations of Japanese immigrants from 1884-1908 -- when immigration was curtailed -- factors determining the distribution of the Japanese immigrants along the West Coast, the rise of anti-Japanese sentiment in the region, the facts of the Japanese birth rate, dual citizenship, language schools and other habitually misunderstood and misrepresented issues, a description of the social, economic and cultural life of the immigrants and their children, and finally the events and pressures which culminated in the Executive Order which empowered the Commanding General of the area to evacuate the entire minority.
