Geoffrey Emerson has written a careful and detailed study of a much-neglected topic in the history of the Second World War and Japan's treatment of enemy civilians in one of its occupied territories. This book is solidly grounded in research and enlivened by pictorial sketches of camp life as well as by interviews with former internees. The result is a story of human endurance and survival amidst terribly trying circumstances over three and a half years. -- Edward Rhoads, Professor Emeritus of Modern Chinese History, University of Texas at Austin Manchus and Han: Ethnic Relations and Political Power in Late Qing and Early Republican China, 1861-1928
