Editorial Reviews

Review

"Culver's intriguing research delves into the question: What happened to Japanese leftist artists and their moves to oppose empire? Glorify the Empire illuminates the results of Japan's suasion campaigns, which pushed these leftists into supporting the imperial cause by travelling to Manchuria, where their careers flourished. In so doing, it neatly overturns a widely held myth about the split between left and right political spheres in Japan."
- Barak Kushner, author of The Thought War: Japanese Imperial Propaganda

"Glorify the Empire is a deeply fascinating study in the culture of Japanese imperialism. Culver shows how many left-wing Japanese intellectuals, writers, and artists came to support Japanese colonial expansionism in China's northeast, not solely in response to intimidation by their authoritarian state, but because Manchukuo represented a vision of East Asian modernity those leftists found genuinely inspirational."
- Erik Esselstrom, author of Crossing Empire's Edge: Foreign Ministry Police and Japanese Expansionism in Northeast Asia --This text refers to the Paperback edition.
