Japanese-American evacuation and resettlement : during World War II by Dorothy Swaine Thomas Thomas( Book )

9 editions published between 1968 and 1974 in English and held by 806 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

During World War II, 110,000 citizens and resident aliens of Japanese ancestry were banished from their homes and confined behind barbed wire for two and a half years. In 1942, a group of social scientists at the University of California, Berkeley undertook a study of the evacuation, detention, and resettlement of the Japanese minority in the United States. This study looked at these events through the lenses of sociology, social anthropology, social psychology, political science, and economics. The study aimed to record and analyze the changes in behavior, attitudes, and patterns of social adjustment and interaction of the people to whom these policies and regulations had been applied. The information for what became known as the University of California, Berkeley Japanese American Evacuation and Resettlement Study was gathered by trained observers who were themselves participating and reacting to the events under observation, both Japanese Americans who were interned, and "Caucasian" staff members. Each kept detailed journals, appended by any documents that could be obtained. When hostilities ceased, work began on analyzing and organizing the resulting data. The first volume addresses the "Spoilage" resulting from evacuation and detention, including Japanese immigrants who returned to Japan, Japanese Americans who relinquished their American citizenship, and those stigmatized as "disloyal" by their captors or comrades. The second volume addresses the "Salvage" of those interned persons whose status was improved by resettlement in the East and Middle West, and those who returned after participating in the war effort. The final volume, "Prejudice, War, and the Constitution" surveys the historical origins, political characteristics, and legal consequences of that calamitous episode, describing myths and suspicions about Japanese-Americans, tracing the influence of racial bigotry in the evacuation, and the court cases growing out of it

The child in America : behavior problems and programs by William Isaac Thomas( Book )

27 editions published between 1928 and 1970 in English and held by 558 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Interest in child adjustment problems and facilities for the study of behavior deviates have grown so rapidly in recent years that a comprehensive treatment of the subject is gladly welcomed. All who deal in any capacity with the problem child will find here a wealth of detailed information about procedures and methods, and a critical evaluation of present practice. The authors deal with their subject from all possible viewpoints. The setting is prepared for the reader by the presentation in the first chapter of pictures of various types of maladjustment, largely in the form of case material. The authors indicate two primary causative factors in maladjustment-organic defect or abnormality in the individual, and wrong habit formation. The remainder of the book is devoted to methods of study and treatment of behavior deviates as indicated by present practice. Methods of dealing with delinquency through the court and the reform school are critically examined. An extensive account is given of psychiatric child guidance clinics and community organizations, club and recreational facilities, for dealing with child behavior problems

The spoilage : Japanese-American evacuation and resettlement during World War II by Dorothy Swaine Thomas Thomas( Book )

8 editions published between 1946 and 1974 in English and held by 157 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

During World War II, 110,000 citizens and resident aliens of Japanese ancestry were banished from their homes and confined behind barbed wire for two and a half years. No more blatant violation of civil rights has ever been decreed by an American president, yet so strong were the currents of bigotry and war time hysteria that effective political opposition was impossible. However, a group of University of California social scientists, sensing the enormity of the outrage, organized in 1942 to record and analyze the causes, legal and social consequences, and long-term effects of the detention program. The Spoilage, one of a series of books which resulted, analyzes the experiences of that part of the detained group-some 18,000 in total-whose response was to renounce America as a homeland; it shows the steps by which these "disloyal" citizens were inexorably pushed toward the disaster of denationalization. Essentially the result of years of research by participant observers of Japanese ancestry, it is a factual record of enduring value to the student of America's troubled ethnic relations
