Norman Smith reveals the literary world of Japanese-occupied Manchuria (Manchukuo, 1932-45) and examines the lives, careers, and literary legacies of seven prolific Chinese women writers during the period. He shows how a complex blend of fear and freedom produced an environment in which Chinese women writers could articulate dissatisfaction with the overtly patriarchal and imperialist nature of the Japanese cultural agenda while working in close association with colonial institutions.

A propos de ce titre

Synopsis :

"Resisting Manchukuo" reveals the literary world of Japanese-occupied Manchuria (Manchukuo, 1932-45) and examines the lives, careers, and literary legacies of seven prolific Chinese women writers during the occupation. In Manchukuo, a complex blend of fear and freedom produced an environment in which Chinese women writers could articulate dissatisfaction with the overtly patriarchal and imperialist nature of the Japanese cultural agenda while working in close association with colonial institutions. The first book in English on women's history in twentieth-century Manchuria, "Resisting Manchukuo" adds to a growing literature that challenges traditional understandings of Japanese colonialism. It will be of interest to those who study the history of East Asia, imperialism, and women.

Critique:

"This is a pathbreaking book. Norman Smith paints a complex and highly nuanced picture of a colonial society, which, for decades, has only been examined in starkly nationalist categories. One of the very first social histories of the Japanese occupation in the cities, Resisting Manchukuo is an artful blend of literary analysis and fascinating social history. - Rana Mitter, author of A Bitter Revolution Dealing with unexplored topics that have been virtually ignored until now, Norman Smith illuminates new worlds for us. He casts light on what life was like for the Chinese living under Japanese rule and, surprisingly, the degree to which literary figures were able to thwart Japanese censorship. - Ronald Suleski, author of Civil Government in Warlord China"
