Overview

A "LOS ANGELES TIMES" BESTSELLER A "NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW "EDITOR'S CHOICE Bestselling author Richard Reeves provides an authoritative account of the internment of more than 120,000 Japanese-Americans and Japanese aliens during World War II
Highly readable . . . A] vivid and instructive reminder of what war and fear can do to civilized people. Evan Thomas, "The New York Times Book Review"

After Japan bombed Pearl Harbor, President Roosevelt signed an executive order that forced more than 120,000 Japanese Americans into primitive camps for the rest of war. Their only crime: looking like the enemy.

In "Infamy," acclaimed historian Richard Reeves delivers a sweeping narrative of this atrocity. Men we usually consider heroes FDR, Earl Warren, Edward R. Murrow were in this case villains. We also learn of internees who joined the military to fight for the country that had imprisoned their families, even as others fought for their rights all the way to the Supreme Court. The heart of the book, however, tells the poignant stories of those who endured years in war relocation camps, many of whom suffered this injustice with remarkable grace.

Racism and war hysteria led to one of the darkest episodes in American history. But by recovering the past, "Infamy "has given voice to those who ultimately helped the nation better understand the true meaning of patriotism."
