War Memory, Nationalism and Education in Postwar Japan, 1945-2007: The Japanese History Textbook Controversy and Ienaga Saburo's Court Challenges

Image of War Memory, Nationalism and Education in Postwar Japan, 1945-2007: The Japanese History Textbook Controversy and Ienaga Saburo's Court Challenges (Routledge Contemporary Japan, Vol. 20)
Author: Yoshiko Nozaki
Publisher: Routledge (2008)
Binding: Hardcover, 198 pages
Summary:
The controversy over official state-approved history textbooks in Japan, which omit or play down many episodes of Japan's occupation of neighboring countries before and during the Pacific War, and which have been challenged by critics who favor a more historically balanced approach, goes to the heart of Japan's sense of itself as a nation. The degree to which Japan is willing to confront its past is not just about history, but also about how Japan defines itself at present, and going forward. This book examines the history textbook controversy in Japan. It sets the controversy in the context of debates about memory, and education, and in relation to evolving politics both within Japan, and in Japan's relations with its neighbors and former colonies. It discusses in particular the struggles of Ienaga Saburo who has made crucial contributions, including through three epic lawsuits, in challenging the official government position.
