Re: QUERY> Marginalized voices on peace, war, and violence in Japan

Jeff Schroeder writes that Makiguchi Tsunesaburō protested Japan's war policies. Unfortunately, this is not accurate as I explain in detail in my article entitled, "Sōka Gakkai Founder, Makiguchi Tsunesaburō, A Man of Peace?"

The article is available on the Web here:

QUERY> Marginalized voices on peace, war, and violence in Japan

Dear colleagues,

I am working with a student doing research on Buddhist conceptions of and approaches to peace, war, and violence, mainly in modern Japan (20th and 21st centuries). It seems that most of the work on this topic is from the perspective of political and religious elites (such as the work of Brian Victoria). I would appreciate recommendations on sources (English or Japanese) which offer other perspectives on this topic, including women's perspetives or marginilzed voices.

Thanks in advance,
