Achieving the Impossible Dream: How Japanese Americans Obtained Redress

Authors: Mitchell T. Maki, Harry H.L. Kitano, S. Megan Berthold

Nearly 50 years after being incarcerated by their own government, Japanese American concentration camp survivors obtained governmental redress for the humiliation, family dislocation and economic ruin caused by their ordeal. Achieving the Impossible Dream chronicles the decades-long, grass-roots fight for redress, culminating in a formal apology from the president of the United States and monetary compensation under the Civil Liberties Act of 1988.
