Le informazioni nella sezione "Riassunto" possono far riferimento a edizioni diverse di questo titolo.
The U.S. occupational government exercised considerable control over postwar Japan, even exercising systematic review and censorship of Japanese films. Themes prohibited by the government's Civil Information and Education Section included militarism, suicide, revenge, nationalism, and racial and religious discrimination, and films condoning the exploitation of children, the degradation of women, or anything at variance with the Potsdam Declaration were also banned. Among the valuable sources consulted by the author, who is the director of the Japan Society's Film Center in New York, were declassified occupation government documents from Washington and Tokyo. This fascinating scholarly study is highly recommended for cinema and history collections.
