The 'Writing Army' and Japan's War of Aggression Against China by Wang Xiangyuan
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


In this book, Japanese literature, which played a prominent role in the aggressive war against China, is analysed as "Invasion Literature". The book conducts an in-depth study and discussion focusing on the origin and development of invasion literature, the writers, their works and the important role they played in the war against China, and the influence that such writings have had on Japanese post-war literature. It examines in particular detail under-discussed and lesser-known texts, thus compensating for lack of other scholarly writings researching the history and representation of the Japanese invasion of China in Japanese literature. This book was first published in Chinese by the "Quality Engineering" Project of Beijing Philosophy and Social Sciences "Nine Five" Planning. Upon publication, it was well-received by the public and led to various television and newspaper interviews for the author. It was republished by Kunlun Press in 2005, and again met with a great reception. The preface of this book was published in People's Daily and several chapters were reprinted in six issues of Journal of Literature and Art. The book won first prize of the Sixth Excellent Achievements of Beijing Philosophy and Social Sciences, and the Book Award of the Sixth Chinese People's Liberation Army. It was also selected to be part of the first national "Three One Hundred" original publication project.
