"Constructing the Colonized Land: Entwined Perspectives of East Asia around WWII", edited by Izumi Kuroishi, was released from Ashgate Publishing, Farnham-UK.
Izumi-san launched the project with her friends in 2009 to publish a book discussing complementary and conflicting views on building colonized lands during the war, and it has finally come out.
I joined the project and contributed the chapter 4 talking about some religious aspects associated with reconfiguring cities in colonized Taiwan.
