In September 2014 Joshua Blakeney undertook extensive archival research at the National Diet Library in Japan. The documents he retrieved, along with the other essays in this book, provide the “Japanese side of the argument” about the origins of the “clash of civilizations” that was WWII in Asia. The bolshevization of China, Western meddling in Asia, Soviet infiltration of the White House, U.S. expansionism in the Pacific, the anti-Japanese provocations which spawned the Pearl Harbor operation and Japan’s Pan-Asianist policies are all subjects explored in the book.

Praise for Japan Bites Back:

“. . . a fascinating contribution to World War II revisionism.”

—Dr. Kevin Barrett, Questioning the War on Terror

“Joshua Blakeney’s Japan Bites Back is a one-of-a-kind book. Western revisionism concerning World War II has focused mostly on Germany while overlooking Japan. Unbeknownst to almost everyone today, American occupation forces in Japan (GHQ) destroyed thousands of different books and journals which expressed Japanese geopolitical views. This Orwellian erasure of history has made it very difficult to understand Japan’s true aims before and during the war. A few documents escaped destruction, and Mr. Blakeney enables us to access them for the first time. Japan was never on a mission of “world conquest.” These documents prove the Japanese knew that Soviet-directed communism, if left unchecked, would engulf China. Ironically, this is exactly what happened in the late 1940s, at the very time the GHQ was destroying the Japanese documents which predicted it. Hats off to Mr. Blakeney for shining a light on an area of history that has, until now, only dwelt in darkness.”

—James Perloff, Truth is a Lonely Warrior

“Joshua Blakeny undertakes the kind of historical revisionism of the war against Japan that other authors have undertaken in relation to the war on Germany. This collection of studies provides an extremely important counter-balance to those who do not understand the pressures the US was exerting on Japan that led to Pearl Harbor. Together with Robert Stinnett, Day of Deceit, we now have the basis for a more balanced and nuanced understanding of the War against the Axis. Brilliant and long overdue, Blakeney deserves praise and congratulations.”
