Censoring history : citizenship and memory in Japan, Germany, and the United States by Laura Elizabeth Hein( )

14 editions published between 1999 and 2016 in English and Italian and held by 1,908 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Focusing largely on textbook treatment of lingering - and sometimes explosive - tensions originating in World War II, "Censoring History" addresses issues of textbook nationalism in historical and comparative perspective. Discussions include Japan's Comfort Women and the Nanjing Massacre; Nazi genocide against the Jews, Gypsies, Catholics and others; Hiroshima and Nagasaki, and the Indochina wars. The essays address controversies over textbook content around the globe: How and why do specific representations of war evolve? What are the international and national forces affecting how textbook writers, publishers and state censors depict the past? How do these forces differ from country to country? Other comparative essays analyze nationalist and war controversies in German, US and Chinese textbook debates

Reasonable men, powerful words : political culture and expertise in twentieth-century Japan by Laura Elizabeth Hein( Book )

11 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 317 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Reasonable Men, Powerful Words traces the development of political culture in twentieth-century Japan through a social and intellectual biography of six Japanese economists who influenced national political life in significant ways. They dedicated themselves to an extraordinary range of public policies, including eliminating poverty, reducing disparities of wealth, reshaping the relationship between government and citizen, building a strong economy devoid of a military component, and creating an educated and politically active populace in Japan. The global ascendance of social scientists is one of the defining characteristics of modernity."--Jacket
Islands of discontent : Okinawan responses to Japanese and American power by Laura Elizabeth Hein( Book )

8 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 279 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Examining contemporary Okinawan culture, politics, and historical memory, this book traces the dynamic reconstruction and reframing of Okinawan identity. The contributors explore the cultural and political expression that has flowered in the past decade with the vigorous growth of local museums and memorials and of the popularity of distinctive Okinawan music and literature, as well as of political movements targeting both U.S. military bases and Japanese national policy on ecological, developmental, and equity grounds. A key strategy has been the mobilization of historical memory, particularl

Post-Fascist Japan : political culture in Kamakura after the Second World War by Laura Elizabeth Hein( Book )

9 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 122 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In late 1945 local Japanese turned their energies toward creating new behaviors and institutions that would give young people better skills to combat repression at home and coercion abroad. They rapidly transformed their political culture-policies, institutions, and public opinion-to create a more equitable, democratic and peaceful society. Post-Fascist Japan explores this phenomenon, focusing on a group of highly educated Japanese - humanists, historians and social scientists -- based in the former capital and coastal city of Kamakura, where the new political culture was particularly visible. Many of these leftist elites had been seen as 'the enemy' during the war, making this project of domestic repair deeply personal for them. The book argues that they saw the problem as one of fascism, an ideology that had succeeded because it had addressed real problems. They turned their efforts to overtly political-legal systems but also to ostensibly non-political and community institutions such as universities, art museums, and local tourism and environmental policies, aiming not only for reconciliation over the past but also to reduce the anxieties that had drawn so many towards fascism. By focusing on a particular group of people in a particular place who had an outsized influence on Japan's political culture, Hein's study is both local and national. She grounds her theoretical discussion by using specific personalities, showing their ideas about 'post-fascism', how they implemented them and how they interacted with the American Occupiers. This is a unique, engaging and important study which will be extremely valuable for students and scholars of 20th-century Japanese intellectual, political and social history"--
