Japanese Workers and the Struggle for Power, 1945-1947

Front Cover
University of Wisconsin Press, 1983 - History - 305 pages
Traditional Western accounts of postwar Japan's democratization have stressed the apparent ease and inevitability of that process. The resulting historical perspective, Joe Moore contends, seriously distorts reality. Drawing on essential and unmined data, including national archive records of the early Occupation, Moore unmasks an agitated, divided, and potentially explosive Japan in the years immediately following World War II.
