Reviews

"[T]his is an excellent study...Yamamoto has affected scholarly assessments of the Sino-Japanese War."-The Journal of Asian Studies "[T]his work is a significant contribution. Yamamoto argues that without "clarification of the truth," there is "no way to determine in what way the Japanese...should be held responsible." His careful, dispassionate analysis of evidence, added to his refusal to embrace either the deniers or the outraged, may make us uncomfortable, but it does move us toward clarity."-The Historian "�T�his is an excellent study...Yamamoto has affected scholarly assessments of the Sino-Japanese War."-The Journal of Asian Studies "�T�his work is a significant contribution.

The massacre of defenseless civilians during their occupation of Nanking illustrates this tendency....Nanking: The Anatomy of an Atrocity by Masahiro Yamamoto shows how the debate about [these] events has continued to reverberate through Japanese society.
