Japanese War Criminals: The Politics of Justice After the Second World War

Sandra Wilson, Robert Cribb, Beatrice Trefalt, Dean Aszkielowicz

    Research output: Book/ReportBook

    Abstract

    Examining the complex moral, ethical, legal, and political issues surrounding the Allied prosecution project, from the first investigations during the war to the final release of prisoners in 1958, Japanese War Criminals shows how a simple effort to punish the guilty evolved into a multidimensional struggle that muddied the assignment of criminal responsibility for war crimes. This book makes a unique contribution to our understanding of the construction of the postwar international order in Asia and to our comprehension of the difficulties of implementing transitional justice.
