Tarling (formerly history, U. of Auckland, New Zealand) discusses the Japanese occupation of Southeast Asia during WWII. Topics include, for example, attempts to make peace with the U.S., the ideology of the Greater East Asia Co-Prosperity Sphere, and the ongoing suffering that resulted from the occupation. The political and economic activities of the Japanese in Southeast Asia are analyzed both in general and as they affected each country. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
