The Last Witness: A Mars Bahr Mystery

Front Cover
Macmillan, May 15, 2003 - Fiction - 339 pages
Sixty years after the Japanese bombing of Pearl Harbor and FDR's Order 9066 incarcerating over 110,000 Americans of Japanese descent (two thirds of them American citizens) one question remains unresolved: Could it happen again? To the writers in this book--novelists, memoirists, activists, scholars, students, professionals--the WWII internment of Japanese Americans in the detention camps of the West is an unfinished chapter of American history. Former internees and their children join with others in challenging readers to construct a better future by confronting the past. A fresh look at a compelling story, told by some of the people who lived it, that continues to tarnish the American dream.
