Franziska Seraphim is Associate Professor of History at Boston College.
With this readable and accessible book, Franziska Seraphim so
demolishes the notion that the Japanese have not remembered World
War II (a claim long contested by Japan specialists) that there is
no longer any excuse for observers of Japan, including
Western-language mass media, to claim otherwise. -- Kenneth J.
Ruoff * Asahi Shimbun *
An insightful, thoughtful treatment of the interest group politics that has been part of Japan's effort to remember and come to grips with its recent past. -- W. D. Kinzley * Choice *
[S]eraphim's contribution to our understanding of early post-war history is highly valuable...there is no doubt that this book is an important addition to the field, and one that will be useful on both undergraduate and postgraduate reading lists. -- Beatrice Trefalt * Japanese Studies *
