TQR Statement

Given that I am carrying on my research topic for a final paper a delayed and retroactive TQR is actually very useful. The current question I am working with is ‘What determined government policy towards Italian Americans during World War II?’

The keywords that I am working with are ‘Italian American’, ‘World War II’, ‘internment’, ‘treatment’, ‘enemy alien’, ‘relocation’ and ‘restriction’. Using various combinations of these keywords on melvyl provided me mostly with works I was already familiar with, however after looking at an ebook entitles ‘Inside America’s concentration camps: two centuries of internment and torture’ by James Dickerson, I found an entire chapter on the experience of Italian Americans. Very much looking forward to reading it.
