Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Tracing the course of conflicts throughout Asia in the past century, this groundbreaking volume is the first to explore systematically the nexus of war and state terrorism. Challenging states' definitions of terrorism, which routinely exclude their own behavior, the book focuses especially on the nature of Japanese and American wars and crimes of war. This rare comparative perspective examines the ways in which state terror leads to civilian casualties, war crimes, and crimes against humanity. In counterbalance, they discuss anti-war movements and international efforts to protect human rights. This interdisciplinary volume will resonate with readers searching for a deeper understanding of an era dominated by war and terror.

Book News Annotation:

This text is derived from a workshop held at the Hong Kong U. of Science and Technology in June 2001. Eleven academics from the U.S., Canada, Australia, Hong Kong and Japan contribute 11 chapters exploring Japanese and American state terrorism in the major Asian wars of the 20th century. They examine the nature, frequency, and most important examples in Asia; how state terrorism has been justified during an era simultaneously characterized by rising human rights consciousness and the emergence of international laws to protect civilians; the effects of past antinuclear and antiwar movements on 20th-century warfare; and future prospects for resistance to state terrorism.
