Abstract

Few events in twentieth-century western U. S. history have been scrutinized more closely than the imprisonment of Japanese Americans during World War II. A team of anthropologists, political scientists, and sociologists studied the incarceration as it occurred. In the last sixty years historians and legal scholars have joined these social scientists in producing dozens of books and articles about the imprisonment. Tetsuden Kashima's thoughtful interpretation of the imprisonment demonstrates that this event has not been examined exhaustively.
