Description

Amazon.com Made famous via his role as Sulu in Star Trek, George Takei became a cultural

phenomenon in the real world through his civil rights engagement and his support for democracy.

Now, in his graphic memoir, They Called Us Enemy, Takei reveals the story of his familyâ€s

incarceration during the internment of Japanese Americans during World War II. A United States

citizen—as was everyone in his family except his father, who had been living in the U.S. for

decades—Takei was only 5 years old when the government forced his family to leave their home

and possessions and move to a concentration camp along with hundreds of others. Takei pivots

between showing through his childâ€s eyes the years in internment with expressing his later,

more-adult understanding of how deeply his parents suffered during and after their imprisonment.

Just as emotionally staggering is how Takeiâ€s father maintained his faith in the democratic

system while the larger government failed him. The straightforward illustrations make this graphic

memoir a read comfortable for all ages, even as the memories depicted range from unsettling to

infuriating. It would be easy to consider Takeiâ€s story simply a colorful glimpse of the

misbegotten past. But its power, like John Lewis†March trilogy, burns in how it persuades the

reader to consider how much weâ€ve really changed since Franklin D. Roosevelt and Earl

Warren decided to imprison families based on unsupported fears. They Called Us Enemy

also inspires readers to engage through democracy to insist that we treat fellow human beings

with fairness and dignity. —Adrian Liang, Amazon Book Review 'They Called Us Enemy is truly

beautiful — moving, thoughtful, important, engaging, and stunningly rendered. I am so excited to

see this book's impact on the world.' — Jacqueline Woodson, National Ambassador for

Young Peopleâ€s Literature and National Book Award-winning author of Brown Girl

Dreaming   'George Takeiâ€s story reveals the important lessons of the WWII Japanese

American Incarceration that still need to be learned today. They Called Us Enemy is a

compelling must-read for all ages.― — Karen Korematsu, Founder and Executive Director,

voice for oppressed communities, and Enemy finds him at peak moral clarity — an unflinching

force in these divisive times.' — The Washington Post'A detailed, wrenching account...Â

They Called Us Enemy should prove the most potent introduction for younger readers to this

ignoble chapter in our history.' — The New York Times'Powerful, moving and relevant.'Â

[They Called Us Enemy] is a testament to hope and tenacity in the face of adversity.' —Â

approachable, well-wrought graphic memoir is important reading, particularly in today's political

climate.' — Booklist (starred review)  'This evocative memoir shares stories of the

nationâ€s past, draws heartbreaking parallels to the present, and serves as a cautionary tale for

the future.'— School Library Journal (starred review)  'Emotionally staggering... They

Called Us Enemy also inspires readers to engage through democracy to insist that we treat

fellow human beings with fairness and dignity.' — Amazon's 'Best Books of the Month'

'A cogent reminder that liberty and justice is not always for all, They Called Us Enemy explores

a dark episode of Americaâ€s past as it dives into the heart of a pop culture icon.' —Â

Foreword Reviews' 'Indie Books That'll Blow You Away' Â 'The creators are gifted storytellers,

and Takei has a great story to tell, full of unexpected twists. And as compelling as it is, it is also

inspirational, a story of ordinary people and the choices they faced in an extraordinary time.' —

ICv2'A tale of triumph over adversity.' — BBC America See all Editorial Reviews
