The Spoilage. Japanese American Evacuation and Settlement. [Inscribed by Co-Author]


Early, immediate post-Second World War sociological examination of the internment and forced re-location of Japanese-American citizens from 1942 to 1945. “They were the spoilage. Their parents had lost their hard-won foothold in the economic structure of America. They themselves, had been deprived of rights which indoctrination in American schools had led them to believe inviolable.” (dust jacket) The book was the first volume in a projected series examining Japanese-American internment. This copy signed and inscribed by co-author, sociiologist Dorothy Swaine Thomas (1899–1977) of the University of California, Berkeley.
