Greg's newest book, A Tragedy of Democracy, breaks new ground by detailing events affecting 22,000 Japanese Canadians in British Columbia, the imposition of martial law until 1944 in Hawai’i, which affected the entire island population, including over 100,000 of Japanese ancestry, the expulsion of about 5,000 Mexican Japanese from the coastal regions, and the internment of about 2,300 Japanese Latin Americans, mostly from Peru, in camps in Crystal City, Texas. Groups other than west coast Americans comprise substantial underemphasized narratives in the existing literature – versions of willed forgetting, as Robinson has termed it in our forthcoming work together . . . the Race, Rights and Reparation revision.

Greg's series on Regan v. King here in the The Faculty Lounge is a critically important reminder that we should willfully remember, if at all possible.
