He developed his interest in politics and activism while still a teenager, and even traveled to China to meet a Russian writer he admired. He returned to California as a young man to avoid being conscripted into what he called the imperialist army of Japan. His account of the prewar period focuses on his increasing involvement with labor organizing, his meeting with Elaine Black who eventually became his wife and lifelong partner in activism, and his efforts to improve workers' conditions while also denouncing what he considered oppressive and unjust policies both at home and abroad.\n</p><p>With Japan's attack on Pearl Harbor, Yoneda shifted his focus to defeating Japan, which he considered to be an oppressive and fascist regime. He attempted to enlist in the Army immediately, but was turned down. While he questioned the prejudice Japanese Americans faced, even within the Communist Party, he considered the cause of defeating imperialism and fascism more important, and threw himself into supporting the war effort however he could. He was among the volunteers who went to <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"\" title=\"Manzanar\">Manzanar</a> to help with construction, and when recruiters for the Military Intelligence Service (MIS) visited Manzanar, he volunteered immediately. He also faced criticism and threats from groups within Manzanar who advocated pro-Japan sentiments. He served in the MIS for two years, mostly in the China-Burma-India Theater, where he wrote propaganda leaflets directed at Japanese soldiers. \n</p><p>In the postwar section of the memoir, Yoneda describes his involvement in different movements, from continued labor organizing and his publications recording the history of Japanese American labor, to civil rights, anti-nuclear protests, and efforts at international cooperation in activism. \n</p>\n<div class=\"toplink\"><a href=\"#top\"><i class=\"icon-chevron-up\"></i> Top</a></div><h2><span class=\"mw-headline\" id=\"Author_Background\">Author Background</span></h2>\n<p>Karl Yoneda is perhaps the best-known and most important Japanese American labor organizer and Communist of the twentieth century.
