Abstract

496 Journal of Japanese Studies 46:2 (2020) eration with civilian counterparts. Both the Kenpeitai and its special police were active across the empire, and their actions in Korea and Manchukuo in the 1930s reinforced the repressive character of thought control in the colonies. Moreover, under the leadership of To ¯jo ¯ Hideki, the Kenpeitai in- fl uence increased dramatically in Tokyo not only to guard against antimili- tary and antiwar intrigues, but also to secure the order necessary to engage in total war. What does this mean in the broader context of thought crime? I am making tentative connections here, but I wonder whether the dramatic expansion of the Kenpeitai in Tokyo can be seen as the reimportation of the repressive, colonial element of thought control to Japan in the early 1940s. If this is true, then it would have been interesting to continue the analysis through the end of the war. Doing so could highlight how, during the era of total war, the colonial model of disciplinary power began to take prece- dence in how thought control was applied in the metropole. Thought Crime is a thought-provoking, intelligent, and necessary book, one that connects the articulation of state
