Uprooted: The Japanese American Experience during World War II
Uprooted: The Japanese American Experience during World War II by Albert Marrin (Other Nonfiction)
This is a book written for high school students, but I would recommend it for adults too, to aid in understanding the history of Japan and China that led to Japan's entry into WWII, and the embedded racism in American policy from the late nineteenth century to the mid-twentieth century. All of this context makes for a rich reading of the experience of Japanese-Americans who experienced the tragedy of being interned during the war, including the many who sacrificed so much to fight for the U.S. -- Added by hollyhal on 03/12/2018

This book is actually set in Italy, India and Indonesia as the author spends 4 months in each country. She reveals more of the culture and country in the Italy and Indonesia sections. The descriptions of the author's study of meditation in India and Indonesia were fascinating. -- Added by Suejefferies on 03/12/2018
