Japan's Prisoners of Conscience

Japan's Prisoners of Conscience

By Lawrence Repeta



The book's narrative style makes it accessible to both general interest and specialist readers. Such as historians, political scientists and other social scientists, who will gain an understanding of the impact of police suppression on political speech, especially anti-war speech, in Japan. The book will be of very strong interest to anyone with an interest in Japan's evolution as a democratic society or the operation of Japan's legal system and to scholars and students of comparative law and peace studies. Little known outside Japan, and not well remembered within the country, in Repeta's capable hands the tale of victories, reversals, and limited vindication of the defendants offers a clear-eyed warning of the challenges to free speech faced by Japanese society today.
