In 1954 a fisherman is found dead in the nets of his boat, and a local Japanese-American man is charged with his murder. In the course of his trial, it becomes clear that what is at stake is more than one man's guilt. For on San Piedro, memories grow as thickly as cedar trees and the fields of ripe strawberries - memories of a charmed love affair between a white boy and a Japanese girl; memories of land desired, paid for, and lost. Above all, San Piedro is haunted by the memory of what happened to its Japanese residents during World War II, when an entire community was sent into exile while its neighbours watched.

This true story of an epic courtroom showdown, where two of the nation's largest corporations were accused of causing the deaths of children from water contamination, was a #1 national bestseller and winner of the National Book Critics Circle Award. Described as “a page-turner filled with greed, duplicity, heartache, and bare-knuckle legal brinksmanship by The New York Times, A Civil Action is the searing, compelling tale of a legal system gone awry—one in which greed and power fight an unending struggle against justice. Yet it is also the story of how one man can ultimately make a difference. Representing the bereaved parents, the unlikeliest of heroes emerges: a young, flamboyant Porsche-driving lawyer who hopes to win millions of dollars and ends up nearly losing everything, including his sanity. With an unstoppable narrative power reminiscent of Truman Capote’s In Cold Blood, A Civil Action is an unforgettable reading experience that will leave the reader both shocked and enlightened. A Civil Action was made into a movie starring John Travolta and Robert Duvall. From the Trade Paperback edition.

Abstract : Racial discrimination has always been a problem in society. For Japanese Americans, World War II presented an especially difficult time. The novel, Snow Falling on Cedars by David Guterson, discusses the lives of the Japanese Americans on San Piedro Island off Seattle before and after World War II. Through a trial of a murder suspect in the court, the novel provides many instances on how the local Japanese Americans were mistreated by the whites. This thesis explores how injustice is presented in the court and how the society mistreated Japanese Americans during the time through analysis of the novel. The thesis also deals with the issue of identity, which is an important theme in the novel as well. The first generation of Japanese American immigrants, the Isseis, were forced to adapt to society by changing their lifestyles and remolding themselves in order to fit in, while the second generation Japanese Americans, the Niseis, faced complex identity problems. Oftentimes, immigrants and their children tend to be confused about their identities and where they consider home is.
