Description - The Politics of Prejudice by Roger Daniels
This classic study offers a history of anti-Japanese prejudice in California, extending from the late 19th century to 1924, when an immigration act excluded Japanese from entering the United States. The book details the political climate that helped to set the stage for the incarceration of Japanese Americans during World War II and reveals the racism present among middle-class American progressives, labour leaders, and other presumably liberal groups.
