Legacies of the Comfort Women of World War II

£55.00

Product description

The editor and authors of this volume affirm the value of the "comfort women" in Japanese troops, neglected until now, and the affirmation itself is an act with broad political implications. These women were members, in most cases, of poor families of the rural working classes. Roughly two hundred thousand Asian women were taken from their communities and put into brothels by the Japanese imperial army. 230 pages, Index pp. 223-230. Bound in black cloth with gilt lettering on the front cover and on the spine. No dust cover. Book is in very good condition, covers are lightly rubbed.
