About this title


This book presents both a biography of a Stanford University professor, one of the first academics of Asian ancestry in the United States, and, through Ichihashi's wartime writings, the only known comprehensive first-person account of life in U.S. "relocation centers" for persons of Japanese ancestry.


"This fascinating account . . . is a particularly important source, because of the paucity of contemporary accounts. Chang's sympathetic biographical essay on this enigmatic figure provides an enthralling insight into relations between Japan and the United States in the first half of this century."--Times Literary Supplement

"[Ichihashi] was uniquely qualified to observe and record history as he lived it, and his records--along with Chang's absorbing commentary--offer an intriguing view of a shattering episode that continues to be a defining experience for Japanese Americans."--San Francisco Chronicle

"Anyone interested in the World War II incarceration experience would do well to read this important volume."--Amerasia Journal

"Upoon discovering Ichihashi's papers among Stanford's manuscript collections, Chang intended to publish them to honor his memory, add to the literature on the wartime concentration camps, and present the deeply poignant human story contained in his documents. Chang has succeeded on all counts."--Journal of American Ethnic History

"Yamato Ichihashi, a distinguished Stanford University professor, experienced, observed, and wrote about internment life . . . and his incomparably rich account far surpasses all previous internee accounts."--Yuji Ichioka, University of California "Los Angeles "
