The book was translated from Japanese into English and Spanish through the efforts of his eight children, and was first published in 1993 by E&amp;E Kudo. A second edition of the book was published in 2000 by the University of Washington Press, with a new foreword by C. Harvey Gardiner, professor emeritus of history at Southern Illinois University and author of <i>Pawns in a Triangle of Hate: The Peruvian Japanese and the United States</i>; a new epilogue by Julie Small, co-chair of Campaign for Justice-Redress Now for Japanese Latin Americans; and, a new preface by Elsa H. Kudo, the author's eldest daughter.\n</p><p>Seiichi Higashide was born in Hokkaido, Japan, and emigrated to Peru in 1931. By the late 1930s, he was a shop keeper and community leader in the provincial town of Ica, and witnessed outbreaks of riots and looting stemming from anti-Japanese business competition. It is estimated that there were around 26,000 people of Japanese descent in Peru at the beginning of World War II. Following the bombing of Pearl Harbor by Imperial Japan, Higashide was seized by police and forcibly deported to the United States along with other <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"/wiki/Japanese_Latin_Americans\" title=\"Japanese Latin Americans\">Latin American Japanese</a>. He was incarcerated behind barbed wire at the <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"/wiki/Immigration_and_Naturalization_Service\" title=\"Immigration and Naturalization Service\">Immigration and Naturalization Service</a> facility in <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"/wiki/Crystal_City_(detention_facility)\" title=\"Crystal City (detention facility)\">Crystal City </a>, Texas, for more than two years. Following his release, Higashide stayed in the U.S. and eventually became a citizen. For many decades, he was a leader in the effort to obtain redress from the American government for the violation of human rights of the Peruvian Japanese internees. In 1981 he testified before the <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"/wiki/Commission_on_Wartime_Relocation_and_Internment_of_Civilians\" title=\"Commission on Wartime Relocation and Internment of Civilians\">Commission on Wartime Relocation and Internment of Civilians</a> and eventually retired in Hawai'i.  \n</p>\n<div id=\"authorByline\"><b>Authored by <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"/wiki/Patricia_Wakida\" title=\"Patricia Wakida\">Patricia Wakida</a></b></div>\n<div id=\"citationAuthor\" style=\"display:none;\">Wakida, Patricia</div>\n<p>Might also like: <i><a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"/wiki/The_Crystal_City_Story:_One_Family%27s_Experience_with_the_World_War_II_Japanese_Internment_Camps_(book)\" title=\"The Crystal City Story: One Family's Experience with the World War II Japanese Internment Camps (book)\">The Crystal City Story: One Family's Experience with the World War II Japanese Internment Camps</a></i> by Tomo Izumi; <i><a class=\"encyc rg\" href=\"/wiki/An_Internment_Odyssey:_Haisho_Tenten_(book)\" title=\"An Internment Odyssey: Haisho Tenten (book)\">An Internment Odyssey: Haisho Tenten</a></i> by Kumaji Furuya; <i><a class=\"encyc rg\" href=\"/wiki/Imprisoned_Apart:_The_World_War_II_Correspondence_of_an_Issei_Couple_(book)\" title=\"Imprisoned Apart: The World War II Correspondence of an Issei Couple (book)\">Imprisoned Apart: The World War II Correspondence of an Issei Couple</a></i> by Louis Fiset\n</p>\n<div id=\"RelatedArticlesDisplay\">\n<div class=\"section\" id=\"Related_Articles\"><h2><span class=\"mw-headline\" id=\"Related_Articles\">Related Articles</span></h2><div class=\"section_content\">\n<p>\n</p>\n<div id=\"RelatedArticlesSectionDisplay\">\n<div class=\"section\" id=\"\"><h3><span class=\"mw-headline\" id=\"\"></span></h3><div class=\"section_content\">\n<p>\n</p>\n<ul><li> <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"/wiki/Memoirs_of_incarceration\" title=\"Memoirs of incarceration\">Memoirs of incarceration</a></li></ul>\n</div></div></div>\n</div></div></div>\n<div class=\"section\" id=\"For_More_Information\"><h2><span class=\"mw-headline\" id=\"For_More_Information\">For More Information</span></h2><div class=\"section_content\">\n<p>Ibuki, Norm Masaji. \"<a class=\"external text offsite\" href=\"http://www.discovernikkei.org/en/journal/2011/9/21/adios-to-tears/\" rel=\"nofollow\">Book Review: Adios to Tears.</a>\" DiscoverNikkei website, Sept. 21, 2011.\n</p><p>Reynolds, Bruce E.
