Neonationalist mythology in postwar Japan : Pal's dissenting judgment at the Tokyo War Crimes Tribunal

Nariaki Nakazato (Author)
This study examines the effect of Radhabinod Pal's judgment at the Tokyo War Crimes Tribunal, in which he boldly dissented from the majority opinion and held that all Japanese defendants were not guilty. It also explores how historical revisionists have utilized and propagated his judgment in postwar Japanese right-wing politics.
