Japan as the Occupier and the Occupied

Christine de Matos (with Mark E. Caprio of Rikkyo University, Tokyo) have just edited the collection Japan as the Occupier and the Occupied (Palgrave Macmillan) which examines transwar transitions in Japan and the various territories that it controlled, including Korea, Borneo, Singapore, Manchuria and China. The book contributes to scholarship on the power dynamics of military occupation and the complexities that emerge during, and in the aftermath of, imperial and military expansion, control, and retreat.

The book will be launched by Professor Vera Mackie in Sydney, on 18 November 2015.
