Inside GHQ : the Allied occupation of Japan and its legacy by Eiji Takemae( Book )

9 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and held by 668 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Japan's success in charting a new course in the years following World War II stems from the reforming impetus of General Headquarters/Supreme Commander for the Allied Powers (GHQ/SCAP), headquarters of the American-led allied occupation that indirectly governed Japan for nearly seven years following World War II. Inside GHQ is the story of the reforms of the Occupation period and of the remarkable men and women, Japanese and American, who implemented them. Eiji Takemae introduces a wealth of new material on the wartime origins of Occupation policies, the British Commonwealth Force, the Kurils, Okinawa, the Korean minority, A-bomb survivors, war crimes, the Constitution, education, and health and welfare. This book is the definitive account of the occupation--its strengths, shortcomings, and failures--and provides insight into the state of contemporary Japan
The Allied occupation of Japan by Eiji Takemae( Book )

7 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 114 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Published on the 50th anniversary of the Occupation's end, Inside GHQ is the story of the revolutionary reforms that transformed Japan and of the remarkable men and women, Japanese and American, who implemented them. Professor Takemae marshals a wealth of new and little-known material on the wartime origins of Occupation policies, the British Commonwealth Force, the Kuril Islands, Okinawa, women, the Ainu and Korean minorities, A-bomb survivors, war crimes, the Constitution, education, and health and welfare. A grand synthesis of post-war Japanese and Western scholarship, Inside GHQ provides an intimate and definitive account of the occupation - its achievements, limitations and failures - and a critical guide to the state of contemporary Japan, including that country's response to the events of September 11, 2001"--Jacket
Denying the comfort women : the Japanese state's assault on historical truth by Rumiko Nishino( )

3 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and held by 35 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Utilising archival research, court testimonies and eyewitness accounts of both survivors and military and civilian personnel, this book argues its case in three ways. Part I analyses the modalities of coercion employed by the authorities and investigates the historical differences and continuities between licensed peacetime prostitution and wartime sexual slavery. Part II then examines the failures f the Asian Women's Fund to resolve the 'comfort women' issue, whilst Part III explores the removal of 'comfort women' content from school history texts after the late 1990s and details Japan's diplomatic efforts to prevent war victims froms uing the post-war state. Presenting a strong argument in opposition to the revisionist school of thought, this book ultimately concludes that a realistic settlement would see a victim-oriented solution that the survivors can accept. -- Website
