This book is a modest rebuttal to the absurd demagoguery against Japan on the issue of comfort women (military prostitution during wartime) that continues to be spread by China and South Korea as if it were the truth.
In the United States, the anti-Japanese activities have become more animated among local Chinese and Korean groups, as can be seen from the erection of a statue of a comfort woman in the city of Glendale, California.
The Sankei Shimbun, one of the Japan’s leading newspapers, has been reporting in detail on activities related to the comfort women issue in the United States. How did the situation come to the point of demeaning Japan to such an extent? Why did the comfort women issue arise in the first place? The Sankei Shimbun dug deep to seek answers and the result is a book titled “History Wars.”
On this occasion the Sankei Shimbun has decided to publish an English version of the book in order to inform people around the world of the facts and clear up the misunderstandings about Japan.
