1)How has modern Japan used war as a strategy to â€œcatch upâ€ to the West? When,
if ever, did Japan feel it had accomplished this goal and gained acceptance as an
equal partner among the great powers of Europe and the United States?
2)Various individuals and institutions have been blamed for the suffering that Japan
caused from 1931 through 1945. These include the Japanese civil government, the
emperor, the military, and the common people. Evaluate the culpability of each of
these actors for Japanâ€™s war in Asia. Who do you think was responsible for
Japanâ€™s trajectory towards imperialism and militarism?
