This is not a book specifically about the internment camps, although it does have that part of history included. It starts out talking about Japanese immigration to the U.S. and talks about the racism they faced but it also talks about problems with cultural misunderstandings.

The book then goes on to example the influences of Shinto, Buddhism and Christianity on the Japanese. It also discusses the early history of the shogunate and the Tokugawa response to Christianity.
