According to the general introduction to the series, it focuses on \"pockets of human culture\" from both the past the present and strives to get beyond stereotypes to allow students to see the similarities and differences between the various cultures. The titles range from\n   <i>\n    Life in Ancient Greece\n   </i>\n   to\n   <i>\n    Life Aboard the Space Shuttle\n   </i>\n   .\n  </p>\n  <p>\n   Author Diane Yancey (1951– ) has written over forty books for juvenile audience since the early 1990s, many for Lucent Books and many in \"The Way People Live\" series. Many of her books are on aspects of U.S. history, health, or crime. In 2001, she produced a second book for Lucent on the incarceration,\n   <i>\n    <a class=\"encyc rg\" href=\"/wiki/The Internment of the Japanese (book)\" title=\"The Internment of the Japanese (book)\">\n     The Internment of the Japanese\n    </a>\n   </i>\n   , for their \"World History Series.\"\n  </p>\n  <p>\n   <i>\n    Life in a Japanese American Internment Camp\n   </i>\n   is based entirely on secondary sources and contains a few mostly minor historical errors. The most significant is an inadequate description of the enemy alien internment camps (page 52) in which Yancey claims that internees were sent to one of four camps administered by the Justice Department and that \"almost all\" of them were men. In reality, internees were sent to many more camps, some of them run by the army. While most were indeed men, one of the camps she does name,\n   <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"https://encyclopedia.densho.org/wiki/Crystal_City_(detention_facility)\" title=\"Crystal City (detention facility)\">\n    Crystal City\n   </a>\n   in Texas, was specifically set up to house families and children. Other issues: a claim that the\n   <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"https://encyclopedia.densho.org/wiki/Gentlemen%27s_Agreement\" title=\"Gentlemen's Agreement\">\n    Gentlemen's Agreement\n   </a>\n   \"increased rather than decreased the number of Japanese coming to the West Coast\" (17; while the agreement did not have the intended effect, it certainly led to a decrease in the number of Japanese migrants); defining\n   <i>\n    kenjinkai\n   </i>\n   as \"traditional Japanese associations made up of people from the same\n   <i>\n    ken\n   </i>\n   , or clan\" (23;\n   <i>\n    ken\n   </i>\n   are the Japanese equivalents of states and\n   <i>\n    kenjinkai\n   </i>\n   are thus organizations of people who come from the same geographic area. Far from being \"traditional,\"\n   <i>\n    kenjinkai\n   </i>\n   in fact only existed in the U.S. and other places where large numbers of Japanese emigrants settled); claiming there were twelve \"assembly centers\" (41; a map five pages later shows the correct number of fifteen); referring to\n   <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"https://encyclopedia.densho.org/wiki/Poston_(Colorado_River)\" title=\"Poston (Colorado River)\">\n    Poston\n   </a>\n   as having \"three wards, or blocks of barracks\" (46; Poston can more accurately be described as having three more or less separate sub-camps); claiming that there were 16 to 24 barracks in a\n   <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"https://encyclopedia.densho.org/wiki/Block\" title=\"Block\">\n    block\n   </a>\n   (47; all of the camps except for\n   <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"https://encyclopedia.densho.org/wiki/Heart_Mountain\" title=\"Heart Mountain\">\n    Heart Mountain\n   </a>\n   had 12 to 14 barracks per block, with Heart Mountain having 24); and claiming that individual units had oil-burning stoves (47; in some camps, units had stoves that burned coal or wood).\n  </p>\n  <div id=\"authorByline\">\n   <b>\n    Authored by\n    <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"https://encyclopedia.densho.org/wiki/Brian_Niiya\" title=\"Brian Niiya\">\n     Brian Niiya\n    </a>\n    , Densho\n   </b>\n  </div>\n  <div id=\"citationAuthor\" style=\"display:none;\">\n   Niiya, Brian\n  </div>\n  <p>\n   Might also like\n   <i>\n    <a class=\"encyc rg\" href=\"/wiki/The Invisible Thread (book)\" title=\"The Invisible Thread (book)\">\n     The Invisible Thread\n    </a>\n   </i>\n   by Yoshiko Uchida;\n   <i>\n    <a class=\"encyc rg\" href=\"/wiki/A Fence Away From Freedom: Japanese-Americans and World War II (book)\" title=\"A Fence Away From Freedom: Japanese-Americans and World War II (book)\">\n     A Fence Away from Freedom: Japanese Americans and World War II\n    </a>\n   </i>\n   by Ellen Levine;\n   <i>\n    <a class=\"encyc rg\" href=\"/wiki/Fred Korematsu Speaks Up (book)\" title=\"Fred Korematsu Speaks Up (book)\">\n     Fred Korematsu Speaks Up\n    </a>\n   </i>\n   by Laura Atkins and Stan Yogi\n  </p>\n  <!-- \nNewPP limit report\nCPU time usage: 0.108 seconds\nReal time usage: 0.110 seconds\nPreprocessor visited node count: 314/1000000\nPreprocessor generated node count: 2107/1000000\nPost‐expand include size: 6312/2097152 bytes\nTemplate argument size: 1243/2097152 bytes\nHighest expansion depth: 3/40\nExpensive parser function count: 0/100\nExtLoops count: 0/100\n-->\n  <!-- Saved in parser cache with key mediawiki:pcache:idhash:3587-0!*!0!!*!5!* and timestamp 20180309150933 and revision id 28173\n -->\n </div>\n</div>",
