Tokyo University and the War

  • Page ID

    Tachibana Takashi analyzes the impact of World War II on Tokyo University and Tokyo University’s impact on the war: attacks from outside, faculty politics and purges, institutional expansion, the sacrifice of liberal arts students to the war machine, and heroic dissenting professors who tried in vain to bring the war to an early end.
