Chapter Summary

This is the introductory chapter of the book titled War and Militarism in Modern Japan Issues of History and Identity, which brings together recent scholarship on issues of both history and identity in an attempt to enrich our understanding of the history-identity connection in Japan, while contributing as well to the scholarly understanding of this nexus in general. In order to make sense of the history-identity nexus with regards to the theme of war and militarism in modern Japan, the book is divided into three parts: the first part presents up-to-date historical analyses of topics on war and militarism in modern Japan; the second part is dedicated to research that sheds light on the features of identity by inferring from war-related historical events and phenomena; and, the last part critically explores conscious and intentional acts of identity formation that were affected by the history under discussion.
