MEDIA REVIEWS

'With tenacity, diligence, and care, Mark McLelland has dug deep into a mountain of late 1940s' Japanese popular print sources to create a tantalizing new look into Occupied Japan.His story is grounded in fascinating details about Japan's postwar 'sexual revolution' that he weaves into a broader tale of how democracy developed under foreign occupation.Entertaining but never sensationalistic, Love, Sex, and Democracy in Japan during the American Occupation is required reading for those who wish to better understand the time.' - Mark D. West, Nippon Life Professor of Law and Associate Dean for Academic Affairs, University of Michigan Law School
