Return from Siberia : a Japanese life in war and peace, 1925–2015

Return from Siberia

What was it like to live through the dizzying changes in Japanese society in the twentieth century, as Japan formed its own imperial colonies in Asia, was defeated in World War II, and achieved its postwar economic miracle? In this book, sociologist Oguma Eiji skillfully locates his father Kenji’s personal experiences of this era in the context of concurrent social, economic, and political trends, blending oral history and social history.
