From Library Journal:

Fox (history, Humboldt State Univ.) tells the little-known story of the relocation of West Coast Italians during World War II. Using government documents, newspapers, and interviews with 43 relocated aliens or their survivors, he traces the development, implementation, and eventual abandonment of the federal policy. For Italians, federal relocation resulted in the breakup of families, the interruption of education, and economic disruption. This is not oral history in the same sense as Sherna B. Gluck' s Rosie the Riveter Revisited (LJ 5/15/87), which allows ordinary people to tell their own stories. Instead, Fox uses the interviews to document his narrative. For academic and larger public libraries.
