About this product
- DescriptionIn this timely book, Stephanie Bangarth studies the efforts and discourse of anti-internment advocates, and discusses the various cases they brought before the courts, as well as the arguements Japanese Canadains raised in their own defence. These critiques of the governement's removal and deportation policies were seminal examples of a growing general interest in civil rights, and would provide a foundation for rights activism in subsequent years. This book offers valuable perspective for today's debates over ethnic and racial profiling, treatment of enemy combatants, and tensions between civil-liberty and security imperatives.
- Author BiographyStephanie Bangarth is an assistant professor of history at King's University College at The University of Western Ontario.
