A Flock Of Swirling Crows And Other Proletarian Writings
Why is education potentially subversive? How does ethnocentrism facilitate an oppressive status quo? Who actually benefits from war? Questions such as these were integral to the work of writer Kuroshima Denji (1898-1943), one of modern Japan s most dedicated antimilitarist intellectuals.
Kuroshima was wholeheartedly committed to fundamental change and produced numerous literary works expressing his passionate opposition to armed force as an instrument of imperialism. His only full-length novel, superbly translated here as Militarized Streets, was censored by both Japan s imperial government and the U.S. occupation authorities. The present volume comprises much of Kuroshima s most highly acclaimed work for the first time in English."
