by Kenichi Takagi

Rengashobo-shinsha in 1994, translated by Makiko Nakano

What is this book about?

During and even before the Second World War, the aggressive expansion of the Japanese Imperial Army caused tremendous damages on local residents in the invaded Asian territories. Even more than 50 years after the war, still-lingering suffers of Asian war victims have yet to be redressed, while time is running out for those aging victims. This book, written by an attorney who has been engaging in helping victims in several Asian countries and regions seeking, through the Japanese judicial system, compensation from the government of Japan, provides legal aspect of these compensation claims in view of international law of wars. In addition, this book offers most extensive information covering numerous cases in Asian counties and territories, which should help you grasp a comprehensive picture of the damages caused by the war in the region
