Abstract:

"Published on the 50th anniversary of the Occupation's end, Inside GHQ is the story of the revolutionary reforms that transformed Japan and of the remarkable men and women, Japanese and American, who implemented them. Professor Takemae marshals a wealth of new and little-known material on the wartime origins of Occupation policies, the British Commonwealth Force, the Kuril Islands, Okinawa, women, the Ainu and Korean minorities, A-bomb survivors, war crimes, the Constitution, education, and health and welfare. A grand synthesis of post-war Japanese and Western scholarship, Inside GHQ provides an intimate and definitive account of the occupation - its achievements, limitations and failures - and a critical guide to the state of contemporary Japan, including that country's response to the events of September 11, 2001"--Jacket.
