Inside GHQ is the story of the reforms of the Occupation period and of the remarkable men and women, Japanese and American, who implemented them. Eiji Takemae introduces a wealth of new material on the wartime origins of Occupation policies, the British Commonwealth Force, the Kurils, Okinawa, the Korean minority, A-bomb survivors, war crimes, the Constitution, education, and health and welfare.
Inside GHQ is the definitive account of the occupation - its strengths, shortcomings, and failures - and provides immense insight into the state of contemporary Japan.
