Reviews

"Nation-Empire redirects the scholarly focus from urban toward rural society and offers a persuasive analysis of sociopolitical change and subjectivity formation across the Japanese empire. Rigorous in its framing and effective in its comparisons, this book is a substantial contribution and reminder that modernity was not simply an urban affair."

-- David Ambaras, Associate Professor of History, North Carolina State University, and author of Bad Youth: Juvenile Delinquency and the Politics of Everyday Life in Modern Japan

"Chatani answer a vexing question of colonialism: why rural youth in Japan, Taiwan, and Korea actively engaged in colonial and wartime initiatives, including military service. This history transforms our understanding of Japan as a "nation-empire" and makes a valuable contribution to the world history of youth."

-- Lori Watt, Associate Professor of History, Washington University in St. Louis, and author of When Empire Comes Home
