A rare report and directory issued after the release of Japanese Americans from US concentration camps during WWII, tracing the resettlement of individuals as well as the rebuilding of their businesses and communities. Although focused primarily on California, the directory includes entries from around the US, with separate sections for organizations, businesses and residences. A short section of photographic illustrations showing the deportation of Japanese Americans to the camps and life inside the camps, as well as post-internment businesses and cities, opens the book, and ads for California businesses are peppered throughout.
