A Principled Stand: The Story of Hirabayashi v. United States

This is an interesting and powerful edited version of personal writings of Gordon Hirabayashi, who challenged the curfew and removal order of Japanese as a loyal citizen of the U.S. and man inspired basically by a Quaker faith. His view from inside of prison is particularly powerful. Gets a bit repetitive late, after we get the gist of his sentiments. It ends with a personal summary of his later work and overturning of the convictions.
