Explores the struggles within contemporary Japanese society to come to terms with WW II history. Providing a contrast to the many orthodox statements about Japanese 'ignorance', amnesia' and 'denial' about the war, this book is of interest to scholars and students of Japanese history, politics, cultural studies, society and memory theory.
