Beyond Victor's Justice? The Tokyo War Crimes Trial Revisited
Yuki Tanaka, Timothy L.H. McCormack, Gerry Simpson
BRILL, Jun 9, 2011 - Law - 436 pages
The aim of this new collection of essays is to engage in analysis beyond the familiar victor’s justice critiques. The editors have drawn on authors from across the world — including Australia, Japan, China, France, Korea, New Zealand and the United Kingdom — with expertise in the fields of international humanitarian law, international criminal law, Japanese studies, modern Japanese history, and the use of nuclear, chemical and biological weapons. The diverse backgrounds of the individual authors allow the editors to present essays which provide detailed and original analyses of the Tokyo Trial from legal, philosophical and historical perspectives.
