Welcome to the companion website of Race, Rights & Reparation: Law and the Japanese American Internment (Aspen Law & Business 2001) (Eric Yamamoto, Margaret Chon, Carol Izumi, Jerry Kang, and Frank Wu).
Race, Rights and Reparation is the only text ever produced that provides a legal curriculum examining the Japanese American internment during World War II and the successful redress movement of the 1980s. Although designed principally for law schools, the text can also be used in graduate and advanced undergraduate departments.
This text was funded in part by a grant from the United States Congress as part of the Civil Liberties Act of 1988, which created an educational fund as part of the redress for interning Japanese Americans during World War II.
Updates Since 2001 Publications:
- 9th Circuit and 2nd Circuit “enemy combatant” cases posted (Dec. 26, 2003)
- A new and substantial Chapter 8 is now available. It explores the lessons of the internment and the redress in a post 9-11 world.
