Japanese Americans were interned to camps for multiple reasons. Such as, the bombing of Pearl Harbor and the war hysteria caused from the Japanese. The president declaring war on Japan had a huge part into internment too. During world war 2 between 110,000 and 120,000 people with Japanese ancestry were forced relocation into the Western interior of the United States. They stayed there from 1942 to 1945 due to executive order 9066.
For many years India struggled greatly for their independence.

During the Temple Massacre British and Gurkha troops killed at least 379 unarmed Indians meeting at the Jallianwala Bagh, to discuss nonviolent resistance and protest. However, the British had passed a law that said they were forbidden from encouraging and having meetings about nonviolent protests. The Salt March, which took place in India, was an act of civil disobedience.
Being a warrior in feudal Japan was more than just a job. It was a way of life. The collapse of aristocratic rule ushered in a new age of chaos — appropriately called the Warring States period (c.1400-1600) — in which military might dictated who governed and who followed. The samurai warriors, also known asbushi, took as their creed what later became known as the "Way of the Warrior" (Bushidô), a rigid value system of discipline and honor that required them to live and die in the service of their lords. If commanded, true bushi were expected to give their lives without hesitation.

The Man In The High Castle takes a different approach, showing rebels fighting the new ruling government (Nazi Germany as well as The Empire Of Japan) as well as some people who forcefully put into challenging positions trying to decide between their past lives or one that could bring the United States back to its former glory. Both of these books show the government of the United States of America being taken over by new governments and follow the lives of people before and after the new ruling governments while also showing what they will do to fight or simply conform to the new standards of living given by the new societies. I think Margaret Atwood borrowed a lot of ideas from Man In The High Castle like, new governments being put

Inside this mentality, it was resolved that Shinto was the most truly Japanese type of religion and culture, and that it was principal to Japanese character at the national level. Shinto turned into the state religion, and was utilized to advance a particular belief system of Japanese prevalence.

Cities were renamed to show off his glory, history books were changed to incorporate false or exaggerated claims of Stalin’s rise to power and life to make him seem more masterful to the youth of the nation.

The Japanese Internment Camps were United States controlled concentration camps during WWII for the accused Japanese-Americans, urged on by the paranoia citizens and ended by the Nisei’s loyalty. The establishment began by the relocation order, also known as Executive Order 9066.

Land given to Curtis P. Iaukea was soon condemned and taken by the government for further development (Iaukea 118). The Queen’s own home was condemned and repurposed as an, “executive mansion” for governors to live in (Iaukea 118).
