Beyond Loyalty: The Story of a Kibei

Reading about the internment of Japanese after watching Allegiance came across this book about a son of immigrants who also went to Japan for a few years to be educated as a child. The book covers the first part of his life, through internment, renouncing citizenship, college, service in the military and further education in Japan. He returned and had a long career in academia. It is a well written philosophical account rich in detail about the triumph of human spirit. Bit of a cliffhanger -- is "Nancy" the woman he married? What happened to "Anne"?
