Publisher Comments:

The Center for US-Japan Comparative Social Studies ( is an Internet-based nonprofit organization. Since its inception in 2000, the Center has provided information about education, culture and society in the United States and Japan. The author of this book, Miki Y. Ishikida, is Director and a principal researcher at the Center.

It has been 60 years since the end of World War II. War memories have been fading as the wartime generation grows old and passes away. Respecting the renunciation of war in the Peace Constitution, Japan is committed to remaining a peace-loving country. As the only victim of atomic bombs to date, Japan has led international peace movements through anti-atomic and anti-hydrogen bomb projects.

Toward Peace: War Responsibility, Postwar Compensation, and Peace Movements and Education in Japan provides information and resources for educators and anyone with an interest in the postwar problems caused by the Asia-Pacific War (1931-1945).

Author Miki Y. Ishikida covers:

  • The questions of war responsibility and reparations
  • Compensation issues of foreign war victims, including Korean and Taiwanese soldiers, Chinese forced laborers, foreign atomic bomb victims, and comfort women
  • The emergence of peace and anti-nuclear weapons movements
  • The description of the Asia-Pacific War in Japanese history textbooks and the textbook controversy.
