Pacifism in Japan contains eight essays which deal, among other things, with such outstanding figures as Uchimura Kanzo and Kagawa Toyohiko. It is an important contribution to the understanding of the pacifist tradition in Japan and shows its development since the end of the nineteenth century. It will be of interest not only to the specialist in Japanese studies, but also to those concerned with war and peace in the modern world.
