“Japanese history” published in 1966 by Japanese Society for History Textbook Reform was sold more than 1,200,000 books and after that many kinds of monkey books named “Japanese education”, “Japanese dignity” something like this were published.
I was embarrassed on this typical Japanese phenomenon at that time.
“Is the history for public peoples?”
The textbook, published as a trade book in Japan in June 2001, sold 600,000 copies.
Despite commercial success, the book was taken up by only a handful of schools, most of which are privately run and located in a comparatively small geographical area of Tokyo.
Translated by Japanese Society for History Textbook Reform is as follows.
1. Nanking Massacre.
In August 1937, two Japanese soldiers, one an officer, were shot to death in Shanghai (the hub of foreign interests).
After this incident, the hostilities between Japan and China escalated. Japanese military officials thought Chiang Kai-shek would surrender if they captured Nanking, the Nationalist capital; they occupied that city in December. But Chiang Kai-shek had moved his capital to the remote city of Chongqing. The conflict continued.
Note at this time, many Chinese soldiers and civilians were killed or wounded by Japanese troops (the Nanking Incident). Documentary evidence has raised doubts about the actual number of victims claimed by the incident. The debate continues even today.
2. Marco Polo Bridge Incident
On July 7, 1937, shots were fired at Japanese soldiers while they were engaged in maneuvers near Marco Polo Bridge (located outside Beijing). By the next day, this incident (the Marco Polo Bridge Incident) had escalated into hostilities with Chinese troops. The incident was of relatively small magnitude, and efforts were made to resolve it locally. But Japan decided to send a large number of troops to China when the Nationalist government issued an emergency mobilization order. These events marked the beginning of a war that lasted for eight long years.
3. Great East Asia Co-prosperity Sphere
The war inflicted a huge amount of devastation and suffering on the peoples of Asia, where it was fought.
The casualties (both military and civilian) attributable to Japanese invasions were particularly high in China.
Each time the Japanese occupied a Southeast Asian nation, they set up a military administration. Leaders of local independence movements cooperated with those military administrations so that they could liberate their countries from the yoke of the Western powers.
But when the Japanese insisted that local populations learn the Japanese language and worship at Shinto shrines, they met with resistance. Anti-Japanese elements who aligned themselves with the Allies engaged in guerrilla warfare, which Japanese troops dealt with severely.
Many people, civilians included, were killed during these confrontations.
When the fortunes of war turned against Japan and food supplies ran short, the Japanese often forced the local population to do back-breaking work.
After the war was over, Japan paid reparations to those nations.
Then Japan was accused of promoting the Greater East Asia Co-Prosperity Sphere philosophy to justify the war and occupation of Asia.
Later, after Japan was defeated and Japanese troops had withdrawn from Asia, all these former colonies achieved independence through their own efforts during the next dozen years.
Some Japanese soldiers remained in Asia and participated in the various struggles for independence.
The initial goal of Japan’s southward advance was to obtain resources, but it also served to spur on nascent independence movements in Asia.
4. Japanese Actions inspire the peoples of Asia
Japanese soldiers drove out the forces of Western Europe, which had colonized the nations of Asia for many years.
They surprised us, because we didn’t think we could possibly beat the white man, and they inspired us with confidence. They awakened us from our long slumber, and convinced us to make the nation of our ancestors our own nation once again.
We cheered the Japanese soldiers as they marched through the Malay Peninsula.
When we saw the defeated British troops fleeing, we felt an excitement we had never experienced before. (Excerpt from the writings of Raja Dato Nong Chik, leader of the Malaysian independence movement and former member of the Malaysian House of Representatives).
From their view point on “Japanese History”,
Is their assertion for our Japanese publics?
Let me remind you of famous speech by Abraham Lincoln who was the 16th president of United States of America at Gettysburg 1861.
“Government of the people by the people and for the people shall not perish from the earth”
This is entirely the true Japanese History that,
“History of the people by the people and for the people shall not perish from the earth”
From this kind of view point,
I am going to write “History of peoples by peoples and for peoples”

This is entirely the timing that,
Conventional politics is going to disappear very soon.
This is entirely the timing that,
Conventional economy is going to disappear very soon.
This is entirely the timing that,
Conventional society is going to disappear very soon.
This is entirely the timing that,
Money is going to disappear very soon.
This is entirely the timing that,
The age of organization is going to disappear very soon.
What kind of factors at the age of individual is if the factors at the age of organization are money, politics, economy and society?
Then let me remind you of the prologue of this book.
The clue of the answer to the question might be hidden there.
From the point of view,
This is entirely the proof that,
The truth goes beyond all ages and countries.

Let me remind you of famous speech by Abraham Lincoln who was the 16th president of United States of America at Gettysburg 1861.
“Government of the people by the people and for the people shall not perish from the earth”
