UnCivil Liberties: Italian Americans Under Siege During World War II

UnCivil Liberties: Italian Americans Under Siege During World War II

from 13.50

By Stephen Fox. Original published as The Unknown Internment. Between February and June 1942, the U.S. Army relocated thousands of West Coast Italian and German aliens to so-called safe zones. The aliens were law-abiding people who had lived in the U.S. for decades. Some had sons in the armed forces, and, for a few families, Pearl Harbor casualties. The author combines interviews, government records and newspaper accounts to reveal this untold chapter in American history. Although the book is not limited to Humboldt County, local Italian-American families are strongly represented. “Outstanding Book.” Gustavus Myers Center for the Study of Human Rights in the United States.
