From the Publisher"Koikari has done a remarkable job in Pedagogy of Democracy: Feminism and the Cold War in the US Occupation of Japan of shedding new light on what might appear at first glance to be a familiar subject. By taking a critical feminist perspective with one eye on the nationalist and imperialist trends within Japan and another eye on the emerging structure of bipolar Cold War conflict, and combining this approach with extensive archival work, Koikari has presented a highly readable and fresh perspective on the US Occupation of Japan…. [T]his book will deservedly command a wide interdisciplinary audience amongst researchers with interests ranging from Japanese Studies to Postcolonial Studies, History to Gender Studies. Koikari is also to be congratulated for breathing new life into a well-established field."
