Labeled “a fascinating and detailed account of one of America’s darkest chapters” by attorney-novelist John Grisham, the book tells the stories of government lawyers who helped to run the camps in which tens of thousands of innocent Japanese Americans were held from 1942 to 1945. They knew the camps were unnecessary, unjust, perhaps even illegal – yet they signed up anyway. As we examine these men’s choices, we come to see more clearly what can lead decent, even good, professionals to lend their energies to systems of mass injustice. Join this book talk to hear more.
