“This is a well-researched piece of scholarship that offers original research on a theme not often studied in international politics and sports diplomacy. Read this book and you will have acquired a unique and thoughtful lens through which to view the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo, as well as East Asian international relations more broadly. A great contribution to the field.” (Victor D. Cha, D.S. Song-KF Professor of Government and International Affairs, Georgetown University and Senior Adviser, Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) in Washington D.C. Author of Beyond the Final Score: Politics and Sport in Asia, 2008)
“Japanese Imperialism is an interesting and attractive study, especially for Asian historians. I am confident this collection will be successful: it is a wonderful work of scholarship. Reflections on the Tokyo Olympics of 2020 as an agent of regional reconciliation are constructive and important contributions to the future of East Asian politics.” (Ikuo Abe, Emeritus Professor, University of Tsukuba, Japan)
“This collection is the best compilation of scholarly work available in English on the relationship between Japanese imperialism and sport; thus is a seminal work in the field. The well-constructed addresses the overarching theme that sport was used in the Japanese Empire as a form of indoctrination, but for Japan’s subject peoples in China, Taiwan, Korea, and Malaya it was a form of resistance. Sport during the Japanese Occupation has left a lasting legacy. Its consideration adds to the uniqueness of the collection. This book will be valuable for both scholars of the cultural history of the Japanese Empire and for students covering the history of modern Japan and the Japanese Occupation of East Asia.” (Kevin P. Blackburn, Associate Professor, National Institute of Education, Nanyang Technological University, Singapore; author The Sportsmen of Changi, 2012)
