About the Book

This book explores the reactions to the Manchurian crisis of different sections of the state, and of a number of different groups in Japanese society, particularly rural groups, women's organizations and business associations. It thus seeks to avoid a generalized account of public relations to the military and diplomatic events of the early 1930s, offering instead a nuanced account of the shifts in public and popular opinion in this crucial period.


'This new book's real contribution is less a rewriting of 1930s history than a sharpening of our understanding of the nature of the crisis that Japan and the Japanese faced in that decade.' - Japanese Studies
