About this product
- Description<b>Race, Rights and Reparation: Law and the Japanese American Internment</b> is the first comprehensive course book that provides critical examination of the Asian-American legal experience, and the legal, social and ethical ramifications of the internment of Japanese- Americans during World War II and the successful reparations movement of the 1980s. Appropriate for a diverse set of law school and n-legal courses, it supplements carefully contextualized case law and social policies with dramatic oral histories, essays, commentary and photographs sure to stimulate class discussion. </p> The <b>Second Edition</b> represents a substantial revision of the original course book.
