Abstract

(p. 139). Those parallels appear to lie in the fact that all wrote long historical narratives, during the same span of years, focused on the war. Of Mizuki, we learned earlier, he "was born in 1922, which equates with year 11 of the Taisho period that lasted for only 15 years, until 1926" (p. 137). ¯ I won't go on. This is a volume of much promise. It contains much that is important. Many paragraphs will provide the standard introduction to postwar writers and works insufficiently covered elsewhere in English. Chapters from the volume mentioned in this review above might find some currency in seminars and classes. The disconnect between intent and execution leaves a wide gap, however, that is exacerbated by insufficient editing. The Subversive Activities Prevention Law of Japan: Its Creation, 1951­52. By Cecil H. Uyehara. Brill, Leiden, 2010. xvi, 456 pages. 155.00. Reviewed by Wesley Sasaki-Uemura University of Utah This book has been a long time in the making. Cecil Uyehara began his study for the book more than five decades ago when he was researching the Japan Social Democratic Party, and yet this is the first in-depth examination of the Subversive Activities Prevention Law
