Japanese War Crimes during World War II: Atrocity and the Psychology of Collective Violence

Author(s): Jacob, Frank;
Contributors: Jacob, Frank;
Abstract:

A challenging examination of Japanese war crimes during World War II offers a fresh perspective on the Pacific War—and a better understanding of reasons for the wartime use of extreme mass violence.


• Covers the full expanse of Japanese war crimes during the Second World War from 1937 to 1945

• Examines the social and political reasons for an increase in the severity of the violence the Japanese used against women and foreign soldiers during the war

• Explains how political relations between the United States and Japan were responsible for increased violence against American soldiers

• Discusses hotly contested issues surrounding the denial of war crimes by the Japanese and the resulting impact on regional and international relations

• Serves to stimulate discussion about the evaluation of mass violence and genocide
