Finally, I have a comment and question on Yamamoto's essay. I was caught off guard by the charge of American anti-Japanese prejudice. If this had been written in the late 1980s, when there was considerable antiJapanese sentiment among some American groups over economic issues, I could more easily understand this point. The only person specifically mentioned with what seems a racially motivated quotation is Russell Jenkins; Yamamoto needs to identify this person so that we can better judge the source of this sentiment. I would also ask why the author thinks that "the Atrocity was an accident" "as far as the responsibility of Japanese commanders is concerned" (p. 286). On the whole, despite the inevitable minor questions and quibbles, this book is an outstanding contribution to furthering our understanding and conversation about one of the most controversial episodes in the twentieth century.
