Japanese Work Ethics vs American Ethics "For an American to consider the Japanese from any viewpoint for any reason, it is important for us to remember that they are products of a unique civilization, that their standards and values are the results of several thousand years of powerful religious and metaphysical conditioning that were entirely different from those that molded the character, personality and habits of Westerners" ( De Mente, p.19).

Racism The Question Of Japanese Internment During World War Two - 2,253 words
Racism: The Question of Japanese Internment During World War Two During World War Two approximately one hundred and ten thousand Japanese, citizens and aliens, were evacuated, interned and either relocated or imprisoned in desolate camps on the basis of their loyalty to the United States. This was justified as a military necessity because the Japanese were thought to be a threat to the security of the west coast of the United States. After the bombing of Pearl Harbor, age-old stereotypes that had their origin in the pioneer age of the old west were reactivated and turned against the Japanese as they had been used against the Chinese in years previous. These exclusionist attitudes have their ...

To get an idea of the size of the W.D.C. imagine a line splitting California, Oregon and Washington in half; the western half of those states would be the W.D.C. and would eventually be devoid of anyone of Japanese descent. Southern Arizona was also included in the W.D.C. Now the internment didnt happen all at once. It happened in a series of proclamations, each taking more rights of the Japanese away once it was put in to action. Proclamation three was the first which directly violated the rights of most Japanese Americans (Daniels 53). It called for an 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. curfew for every person of Japanese descent in the W.D.C. Dur ...

Japanese Imperialism (and Other Countries) In The 1920s - 1,118 words
After World War I, Japan began watching China with interest. Japans military leaders hoped to gain some of Chinas lands and resources if it should become weak.

Men earned the right to vote, unions formed, and women gained more freedom. Japan also began cooperating with the West in an attempt to prevent future war.

Characterization In John Galsworthys Japanese Quince - 449 words
John Galsworthys Japanese Quince (reprinted in Derrines Story and Structure, 2nd Ed. [Dallas: Harcourt 1966] p. 80 81) focuses on the chance encounter of Mr. Nilson and Mr. Tandram, who are long-time neighbours, but who have not, as yet, met. As the story unfolds, we see that they are portrayed as near mirror images. Indeed, it is through their similarities in appearance, situation and actions that much of Mr. Nilsons character is revealed. Mr. Nilson has firm, well-coloured cheeks, neat brown moustaches, and well opened clear grey eyes. One can assume from this that he was a well-groomed man that took grave care in his good health. Maintaining ones health usually requires dedication to a r ...
