Part of the Asian America series presented by Stanford University, this book analyzes how the politics of memory and history affected representations of the World War II internment of Japanese Americans. Murray (history, U. of California Santa Cruz) focuses on the experiences and perspectives of the Nisei, the second-generation Japanese Americans, who were active post-World War II in the movement to redress the internment issues, interviewing former internees and redress activists as part of her research. The nine chapters progress in a roughly chronological historiography since World War II while also addressing histories of the "military necessity" for internment, the loyalty and patriotism of the Japanese American Citizens League, the "helpful" administrative advisors and "objective" researchers in the camps, and the representation of the internment in art and media. An epilogue focuses on the legacy of the Japanese American internment and redress. Annotation ©2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
