"Historical Memories of the Japanese American Internment and the Struggle for Redress is more than just a reflection on the various contours of memory can assume, It is also about strategic deployment of memory to achieve particular ends, in this case an offical apology and redress for the unjust internment of Japanese Americans during World War II ... Murray persuasively links the different perspective of ... various Japanese American organization to their different views on how best to negotiate a racial chasm that was only deepened by internment." - Andrea Geiger, Montana: Magazine of Western History "By weaving the story of the JACL and other groups and individuals through nine chapters and six decades, Yang Murray illuminated the ever-changing historical reverberations of this singular event ... Yang Murray is to be commended for her willingness to reframe familiar and seemingly stable historical material." - Karen M. Inouye, American Historical Review. "Historical Memories stands strong in simply demonstrating how Japanese-American perception of Japanese-American history has matured and unfolded over generation. The work warrants examination by those interested in memory studies and generational change." - John H.Barnhill, Canadian Journal of History "In unique, insightful ways, Murray examines the much-studied exile and incarceration of Japanese Americans during WWII and the redress movement that followed...Murray has presented an accessible, nuanced, and provocative account that is valuable to both scholars and the broader public." - CHOICE "This book presents a comprehensive and multidimensional analysis of the wartime internment of Japanese Americans and their long struggle to seek redress..." - Journal of American History
