Professor Samuel Yamashita, the Henry E. Sheffield Professor of History at Pomona College gave a well-attended CJS Seminar on April 5 titled “Coercion, Compliance and Resistance in Wartime Japan, 1942-1945.” Professor Yamashita’s project is interested in looking at how did ordinary Japanese respond to the outbreak of war, defeat, and the aftermath through the diaries that citizens kept. He highlighted some of the food shortages that Japan experienced during the war years, especially in major cities, that were frequently mentioned in the diaries citizens kept.
