The power of memory in modern Japan.

KEY FEATURE(S): Today′s increasing interest in the relevance of memory generated a particularly strong response at the 2005 conference of the European Association of Japanese Studies (Vienna), providing a rich and varied group of papers. A selection of the most significant research relating to modern Japan, not least from Japanese scholars, subsequently edited for publication, forms the basis of this volume.

For the historian and social scientist the opportunity to access recorded memories is invariably welcomed as a valuable building block in research and a determinant in establishing balance and perspective. Subjects treated include the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum, the Kamikaze Special Attack Corps (Tokkotai), how Comfort Women are remembered in ′historical revisionism′ in Japan, the history and memory of the Nanjing massacre, the ′Tokyo Trial view of history′, historical memory in novels, and an analysis of the post-occupation war movies.
The Power of Memory in Modern Japan will be widely welcomed by students of modern Japanese history, politics and international relations.

Zusammenfassung (Synopsis):

Due to their symbolic and iconographic meanings, expressions of collective memory constitute the mental topography of a society and make a powerful contribution to its cultural, political and social identity. In Japan, the subject of memory has prompted a huge response in recent years. Indeed, it has been and continues to be debated at many levels of Japan's political, social, economic and cultural life. For the historian and social scientist the opportunity to access recorded memories is invariably welcomed as a valuable building block in research and a determinant in establishing balance and perspective. This volume brings together a selection of the most significant research on memory relating to modern Japan. Thematically structured (Politics and International Relations; Memorials, Museums, National Heroes; Popular and Intellectual Representations of Memory; Realms of Memory: Centre and Periphery) the subjects treated include the Nanjing massacre, comfort women, the fate of war monuments, the political use of national memory in post-war Japan and remembering the atomic bomb.
