Native American Aliens: Disloyalty and the Renunciation of Citizenship by Japanese Americans during World War II

Synopsis

"Collins addresses a subject that has been the object of much research and controversy in the past decade: the internment of tens of thousands of Japanese-Americans during WW II. More specifically, he focuses on the mass renunciation of citizenship by these persons of Japanese ancestry. The author contends that the renunciations were based on misinformation rather than on disloyalty... The book is well written, presenting some new data rather than merely relying on existing documents. The bibiliography is comprehensive for those who may have an interest in the general subject of the treatment of Japanese-Americans during the war. Readers in the fields of American and ethnic history, diplomacy, and Asian studies will find this book of use. College, university, and public library collections."- Choice
