From School Library Journal:

Grade 5-9-- Libraries owning previous editions of this book will want to update their collections with this one as the organization and content differ substantially. Leathers describes the circumstances of Japanese emigration to the U. S. and concentrates on the social and legal reception the immigrants received in their new home. He chronicles the manifestations of racial prejudice, especially during World War II. The various laws and acts effecting all immigrants, and the Japanese in particular, are surveyed. An overview such as this presents only general information and major trends, such as the tendency for Japanese to work in agriculture. The final chapter, however, does present brief biographies of Japanese Americans who have achieved noted success in a variety of endeavors. The black-and-white photographs complement the text. The writing is clear, and the subject matter well organized. The book will be useful in libraries that do not have Kitano's Japanese Americans (Chelsea, 1987), as both books cover the same information with comparable success. --Susan Middleton, LaJolla Country Day School, CA
