A vast and ever-growing literature exists\, first on the e ntry and settlement of Japanese immigrants in the United States at the tur n of the 20th century\, then on the experience of the immigrants and their American-born children during World War II. Yet the essential question\, &ldquo\;What happened afterwards?&rdquo\; remains all but unanswered in hi storical literature.\n\nExcluded from the wartime economic boom and scarre d psychologically by their wartime ordeal\, the former camp inmates strugg led to remake their lives in the years that followed. This volume consists of a series of case studies that shed light on essential postwar various developments such as resettlement nationwide\, the question of assimilatio n\, and the relations between Japanese Americans and other minority groups \, including Mexican Americans\, Jewish Americans and African Americans.\n \nFree with Museum admission.&nbsp\;Reservations recommended to rsvp@janm. org or 213.625.0414 at least 48 hours prior.&nbsp\;<a href="http://www.jan" target="_blank"></a>\n<a href="" t arget="_blank"></a>\n<a href="" target="_b lank">Purchase&nbsp\;<em>After Camp</em>&nbsp\;from the Museum Store &gt\; &gt\;</a>\n<a href="/journal/2013/2/13/after-camp/" target="_blank"></a>\n <a href="/journal/2013/2/13/after-camp/" target="_blank">Read our intervie w with Greg Robinson about this book on our site &gt\;& gt\;</a> SUMMARY:BOOKS &amp\; CONVERSATIONS: "After Camp: Portraits in Midcentury Ja panese American Life and Politics" by Dr. Greg Robinson URL:/en/events/2013/03/02/books-amp-conversations-after-camp-portraits/ END:VEVENT END:VCALENDAR
