Ismiss such a view I highly recommend this text for anyone who has an open mind and is willing to learn beyond the dichotomy of Victimized Korea and Victimizer Japan While she might appear biased at points as the pieces fall into place we see a holistic view of an issue that still lingers today and we can take comfort in the fact that this is neither pro Japan revisionism although some of the arguments have been appropriated by Japanese neo nationalists nor #is it simply another retelling of post colonial Korean victimization These #it simply another retelling of post colonial Korean victimization These need to be discussed and explored beyond the bounds of nationalism after all while the Historical Comfort System in all its brutality may have died on August 15 1945 comfort systems continue to exist today within Korea Japan and beyond We need to look at the systematic factors that enables this behavior and these policies and I believe that this book has done an excellent ob of accomplishing ust that.

One of the best anthro historical treatments of the subject with nuanced and complex analyses I read The Comfort Women for my final research paper on
analyses I read The Comfort Women for my final research paper on Women for my undergraduate degree It is an amazing piece of information for anyone interested in the topic of comfort women or as a key source for your own research It is analytical without losing the interest of the audience or losing factual accuracy This is not an easy read but the topic itself is not an easy topic to digest This is a definite read for anyone interested in Japanese ImperialismWWII history or in Korean history I found the parts about the crushing patriarchy of Korean society to be the most interesting as well as comparisons to Japanese sex tourism today The stories of the Korean women who left home to become modern girls and were duped into slavery were heartbreaking but Soh s call that we should remember those who entered prostitution willing but were still In an era marked by atrocities perpetrated on a grand scale the tragedy of the so called comfort women mostly Korean women forced into prostitution by the Japanese army endures as one of the darkest events of World War II These women have usually been labeled victims of a war crime a simplistic view that makes it easy have usually been labeled victims "of a war crime a simplistic view that makes it easy pin blame on the policies of imperial Japan "
a war crime a simplistic view that makes it easy pin blame on the policies of imperial Japan therefore easier to consign the episode to a war torn X
ploited is my main takeaway here This would be a really fabulous book for people interested in Comfort Women or the intricacies of World War Two in East Asia although it s a bit too academic and deals with too heavy a topic to be an easy read I thought it was a fine book but I wasn t all that interested in it because I read it for a class I had to read this book for my graduate school s modern history class and it is by far the best book that I have ever read All I can say "is that this is probably the best work on the topic Simultaneously sympathetic "
that this is probably the best work on the topic Simultaneously sympathetic nuanced Soh complicates a nationalized issue where multiple authorities claim LEGITIMACY ON OFFICIAL HISTORY THIS IS on Official History This is because as the author evidences the so called Comfort System did not appear in a vacuum They are a product of capitalism war and masculinist legitimization of the male desire for sex While most people influenced by nationalist historiography would probably Ast In this revelatory study C Sarah Soh provocatively disputes this master narrative Soh reveals that the forces of Japanese colonialism and Korean patriarchy together shaped the fate of Korean comfort women a double bind made strikingly apparent in the cases of women cast into sexual slavery after fleeing abuse at home Other victims were press ganged into prostitution sometimes with the help of Korean procurers Drawing .
