This book could not have been done better. Not only is there history of Japan and their war history, but there is also the history of Japanese immigrants to the United States. Then, the bulk of this story delves into the truth behind Japanese Internment camps, and the fear our government felt, especially our president, and how that fear turns into hate and that hate breeds laws that destroy a particular people based on nothing. This book is so incredibly prevalent for our country right now, because our government already fears certain groups, and if we aren't careful, we may end up in that same situation. When we will finally learn from our past?
