Praise
"Takaki's swift account is rich in humanity and inclusiveness, and his meticulous notes offer ample resources for those who wish to delve further."
From the Publisher
Annotation This multicultural perspective on World War II tells how American soldiers and citizens played a significant role in the war effort but also how they were affected both by the fervor of ideology and by the reality of their everyday lives--and sometimes by the contrast between the two. Professor Takaki also examines decision-making at the top, in which multicultural issues can be perceived.
Editors Note Arguing that many Americans fought in World War II for a "double victory"--one against fascism abroad, the other against racism at home--the author captures the voices of people who are often overlooked in traditional narratives of the conflict.
Editors Note 2 From a Navajo code talker to a Tuskegee pilot, Takaki examines the many contributions and sacrifices of America's minorities--blacks, Chinese, Native Americans and others--during World War II. Photos.
