About this ebook

George Takei has captured hearts and minds worldwide with his captivating stage presence and outspoken commitment to equal rights. But long before he braved new frontiers in Star Trek, he woke up as a four-year-old boy to find his own birth country at war with his father's--and their entire family forced from their home into an uncertain future. In a stunning graphic memoir, Takei revisits his haunting childhood in American concentration camps, as one of over 100,000 Japanese Americans imprisoned by the U.S. government during World War II. Experience the forces that shaped an American icon--and America itself--in this gripping tale of courage, country, loyalty, and love.

George's high profile barbs and zingers at William Shatner over the years have been so assenine, tasteless and juvenile, and never ending , I can't Takei seriously . Sad really. Grow up.

Moving and powerful, this is history in its most vibrant form. Beautifully written and elegantly drawn, it's a must read. It's reminder that the world it portrays is not much different from the one we find ourselves in now is chilling.... but necessary.
