Takaki also considers the racial biases that influenced important American government actions during the war, like the bombing of Hiroshima and the refusal to admit Jews into the U.S. Double Victory clearly demonstrates that World War II helped to transform American society and advance the cause of multiculturalism throughout the country.
"[Double Victory] depicts, forcefully and clearly, the first steps toward an America that could be color-neutral." (Publishers Weekly)
