This book explores the reactions to the Manchurian crisis of different sections of the state, and of a number of different groups in Japanese society, particularly rural groups, women's organizations and business associations. It thus seeks to avoid a generalized account of public relations to the military and diplomatic events of the early 1930s, offering instead a nuanced account of the shifts in public and popular opinion in this crucial period.

Editorial Reviews

"The strength of this book lies not so much in contesting an old orthodoxy, but in adding to our knowledge of this era by shedding light on the problem of crisis consciousness.."
-"Journal of Japanese Studies, Y. Tak Matsusaka
