Higashide recounts his numerous difficulties and conflicts with the United States government. He describes his arrest in Peru and deportation to the U.S., where he was held for more than two years in an Immigration and Nationalization Service internment camp. He also discusses his decision to remain in the U.S. after the war, the process of attaining citizenship, and his efforts to obtain redress from the American government for its violation of the human rights of the Peruvian Japanese internees. This second edition contains a new foreword by Gardiner (history, Southern Illinois University, emeritus), a new epilogue by Small (co-chair, Campaign for JusticeRedress Now for Japanese Latin Americans), and a new preface by Higashide's eldest daughter.
