"A truly excellent and moving book . . . The story of the concentration camps for Japanese has often been told, but usually with an emphasis on the silver lining. . . . Michi Weglyn concentrates instead on the other side of the picture. Years of Infamy is hard hitting but fair and balanced. It is a terrible story of administrative callousness and bungling, untold damage to the human soul, confusion, and terror."-Edwin O. Reischauer, former U.S. Ambassador to Japan
