Dickerson ô 7 characters Faced recently when Homeland Security awarded a major contract to a subsidiary of Halliburton for the construction of new camps            In Inside America's Concentration Camps author James L Dickerson explores the history and the tragedy of the camps in a vivid narrative that brings the stories of the victims and the flaws of our government to life Rebecca Neugin Eleanor Berg Roy Abbey Marino Sichi Louise Ogawa these are some of th. This is a book that primarily deals with the various internments during World War II This one covers the full spectrum though covering persons of Japanese ancestry Germans and Italians Most of what reads about the internment concerns the Japanese Americans so the addition of learning about what happened to the Germans and the Italians is goodThis is also a book that deals with factual details but at the same time ties them in to specific examples of what happened to certain people and that alone is uite enough to get one uite angry that America threw civil rights totally to the wind and ignored it's so called justice system just to get some people they felt were potentially dangerous out of the wayWhich of course is not a whole lot different from what is happening in today's worldThe book starts off examining the way the Native Americans were treated rounded up and forced onto reservations The reservations like the internments were often on land that was not basically very good The Native Americans like the Japanese Americans were rounded up not charged with any specific crime given no defense attorney subjected to no trial and just forced to move away from their homes under gunpoint The only major difference is that the reservations were not surrounded by barbed wire guard towers and Army soldiers and in some cases tanksOne thing not pointed out in the book though is that the Native Americans were also subjected to biological warfare on the parts of the whites and some of the Native Americans were given blankets which contained smallpox sporesThe last part of the book goes into the possibility that such a thing like internmentconcentration camps could very well again happen in this country with people's rights totally trampled into the ground Now what I will do is to just list some highlights of the book as there is so much information in the book that the review could end up being way too longSome of the emphasis on the camps or similar things were really the result of big business even back to the earliest colonies in the USSome of the things that FDR did in relation to Hawaii that do not appear in other books on this subjectWhat led up to Executive Order 9066Life in the various camps and comparisons between the desert camps and the camps built in swamp areasHow the Germans and Italians were treated and how this differed from the way Japanese Americans were treatedHow the US turned its back on Jews seeking safety from the NazisThis is without doubt one of the most valuable informative books on the entire internment process
