Greenwood Publishing Group, 2004 - Almanacs, American - 144 pages

In the 20th century, Asian Americans continued to face the challenge of racial inequality. They were often denied basic rights as citizens, and many were forced into internment camps during World War II. The impact of this war on Asian Americans, as well as the repercussions of the Korean and Vietnam wars, is examined. This volume covers the fight of Asian Americans against such oppression, including the rise of Pan-Asian movements.
