"While many are aware of the injustice behind the US government's internment of over 100,000 Japanese Americans during WW II, historian Chew has successfully taken on a project that needs just as much exposure by the historical profession."--Choice

"This volume is necessary reading for Latin American, Mexican, Latino, and Asian American historians... [and] the general public will have a strong interest."--Hispanic American Historical Review

"This excellent book adds to the growing literature on Asian migration to the Americas and would be useful for undergraduate and graduate courses on Mexican and borderlands history as well as on race and ethnicity in Latin America."--Western Historical Quarterly

"A refreshing perspective on wartime injustices long overlooked by historians."--Southwestern Historical Quarterly

"Chew has crafted a thoughtful, well-researched, and critical analysis of this shameful period of Mexican and U.S. histories."--B rbara O. Reyes, author of Private Women, Public Lives: Gender and the Missions of the Californias

"Scholars in the field have been waiting for a book like this for a long time. Drawing on new archival discoveries and oral histories, the author provides for the first time a comprehensive look at the plight of Japanese Mexicans during World War II."--Erika Lee, co-author of Angel Island: Immigrant Gateway to America
