Japan's Comfort Women: Sexual Slavery and Prostitution During World War II and the Us Occupation (Asia's Transformations)

by

Japan's Comfort Women: Sexual Slavery and Prostitution During World War II and the Us Occupation (Asia's Transformations) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"Japan's Comfort Women" exposes the story of Japanese women who were forced to enter prostitution to serve the Japanese Imperial army, often living in appalling conditions of sexual slavery. Using a wide range of primary sources, Tanaka uncovers new and controversial information about the role of US occupation forces in military controlled prostitution, as well as evidence of a subsequent "cover-up." Tanaka asks why US occupation forces did little to help the women, and argues that military authorities organized prostitution to prevent the widespread incidence of GI rape among the Japanese women and to control the spread of sexually transmitted diseases. This groundbreaking book reveals new material relating to this highly controversial and contentious issue and is sure to have a deep impact on the ongoing international debate on this highly emotive issue.

Book News Annotation:

Tanaka (Hiroshima Peace Institute, Hiroshima City U.) explores the history and implications of Japan's system of enforced military prostitution during World War II. She examines the ordeals and experiences of Korean women, discussing why Korea's colonization by Japan led it to become the main supplier for Japan's system of sexual slavery. Focus is then turned on the enforced prostitution of Dutch, Eurasian, and Indonesian women that began in 1943 and the fact that the exploitation of the Dutch women was vigorously prosecuted by Dutch military authorities, but the cases of the other women were ignored. The complicity of American, British, and Australian military authorities in covering up Japanese crimes against women is then examined in the contexts of general military prostitution systems shared by all parties. Distributed by Taylor & Francis.
