This important final report of the War Relocation Authority, written in 1946 describes the growth and changes in the community life and how attitudes of Japanese-American relocatees and WRA administrators evolved, adjusted, and affected one another on political, social, and psychological levels.

Historian Natasha Varner wrote the essay, "Social Science as a Tool for Surveillance in World War II Japanese American Concentration Camps."
