Inside the Japanese Canadian Call for JusticeBook - 2004
Redress takes an unflinching look at the controversial movement to right the wrong done to thousands of Japanese Canadians during the war. Applying the concept of “negotiations” to the 20th-century history of Japanese Canadians, Roy Miki interweaves the main historical narrative with stories from his own personal and family histories, anecdotes of pivotal events in the redress movement, candid comments from interviews, and documents only available in archival collections. In the process, Redress illuminates the larger issues of race and tolerance in Canada as well as in other nations where “new citizens” seek acceptance.
