MEDIA REVIEWS
Praise for Undue Process: The Untold Story of America's German Alien Internees: The scholarship is a tour de force! -- Amos E. Simpson, University of Southwestern Louisiana
Krammer, premier historian of WW II military POWs held in the U.S., now calls attention to German civilian interness. * CHOICE *
Undue Process by Arnold Krammer, is a disturbing book but one that should be read by every American concerned about human rights abuses in our own country. * Barnes Review, March/April 99 *
...a valuable contribution insofar as it introduces readers to a topic that has received little previous attention... -- Peter Kivisto * American Historical Review, Augustana College *
A crisp volume...a set of remarkable surprises. Undue Process is cleanly written and thoroughly researched; it is a fine example of the historian's craft. -- Robert Weldon Whalen, Queens College * Journal of Southern History *
Krammer has, once again, demonstrated admirable archival skills. His reconstruction of a forgotten incident is an interesting contribution to our understanding of the home front and domestic dilemmas during World War II. -- Ron Robin, University of Haifa, Israel * Journal of American History *
Using extensive primary sources, including interviews with former internees, as well as only recently released government documents, Krammer illuminates the government's motives and methods, identifying the victims of the persecution, and vividly describes the quality of life in the camps where Germans were interned. This book includes dozens of revealing, and hitherto unpublished photographs of interned Germans and a list of internment camps during World War II. In conclusion, Krammer notes that, next to the Japanese Americans, the German Americans 'constituted the largest number interned. Unexplicably, their experiences have been passed over by history' (p. 174). However, his work definetely contributes to illuminating this negleected topic. -- Don Heinrich Tolzmann, University of Cincinnati * Journal of American Ethnic History *
[A] fascinating and little known story . . . informative, briskly written, and frequently disturbing. -- Burt Erickson Nelson * People's Friend *
