Overview

In the early part of World War II, 110,000 persons of Japanese ancestry were interned in relocation centers. Manzanar, the first of ten such concentration camps, was bounded by barbed wire and guard towers, confining 10,000 persons, the majority being American citizens. May the injustices and humiliation suffered here as a result of hysteria, racism and economic exploitation never emerge again.

    america's concentration camps

    Why did the United States go to such extreme measures in the internment of Japanese Americans? What are the reasons that provoked this action that is now known as the most widely condemned action of in United State's history? Was this internment a result of military necessity or racial prejudice? What were the conditions of these camps and how were the Japanese treated? All of these answers are found in the book America's Concentration Camps. The book is a definite source of information about the harsh realities occurring in the U.S. during the 1940's. It includes interesting facts and discusses possible answers to many unsolved questions. Allan Bosworth presented the shocking truth about the internment of Japanese Americans in the United States. The book is one that presents the reader with many details and has shocking depth. Over all, America's concentration Camps is a very interesting book.
