Japan's Past, Japan's Future free pdf Spanning Japan's watershed twentieth century, this compelling autobiography traces Ienaga Saburo's childhood, education, wartime experience, academic career, and court battles. He is perhaps best known as the courageous plaintiff in three lawsuits (1965-1997) against the government seeking to end certificationO of textbooks, which even today constrains discussion of Japan's involvement in China and in the Pacific War. Minear contextualizes Ienaga's career and brings the story to the present with a masterly introduction of the man and his times and excerpts from Ienaga's court testimony and recent interviews. Illustrated with photos and textbook extracts, this volume will be widely read and used by Japan specialists as well as all scholars and general readers concerned with issues of academic freedom and war and peace.

He remains one of Japan's - and the world's - foremost intellectuals. Richard H. Minear is professor of history at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, and the author of Dr. Seuss Goes to War.
