The balance between civil liberties and national security is scrutinized in this, the first comprehensive course book ever published to critically explore the legal, ethical, and social ramifications of the internment of Japanese Americans during World War II and the successful reparations movement of the 1980s.

The book features:
• an outstanding author team - all are noted scholars in this and other fields of law
• a rich pedagogy that includes thematic overviews, socio-historic background, in-depth study modules, cases, original documents and photographs, questions, and commentary
• an interdisciplinary approach that includes scholarship from sociology and history as well as law review articles and cases
• a discussion of how areas of law construct race and how political and social contexts shape and influence the law
• issues of tremendous contemporary significance - such as the treatment of Arab-Americans during wartime and the prosecution of Chinese-American scientist Wen Ho Lee for espionage
• analysis of the impact of Japanese-American redress on African-American reparations claims

A Teacher's Manual that includes:
• guidance for teaching each chapter
• suggestions for how to make optimal use of study manuals
• explanations and analysis that address questions raised in the book

Editorial Reviews

A course book exploring the continuing legal, ethical, and social implications of the internment of Japanese American citizens during World War II. It presents cases, original documents, and commentary and questions that encourage critical inquiry in to issues such as whether the Supreme Court's wartime opinions hold internal inconsistencies, and to what extent they were influenced by politics. All Americans have a stake in understanding how internment happened, write the authors (teachers at prominent law schools at five US universities). The legal machinery leading up to internment, they write, reflects "both the best and the most dangerous aspects of the American legal process for all Americans<-->the promise of equality and the precariousness of liberty in times of national stress."
