Title:      Japanese War Criminals
Beginning in late 1945, the United States, Britain, China, Australia, France, the Netherlands, and later the Philippines, the Soviet Union, and the People's Republic of China convened national courts to prosecute Japanese military personnel for war crimes. The defendants included ethnic Koreans and Taiwanese who had served with the armed forces as Japanese subjects. In Tokyo, the International Military Tribunal for the Far East tried Japanese leaders. While the fairness of these trials has been a focus for decades, Japanese War Criminals instead argues that the most important issues arose outside the courtroom. What was the legal basis for identifying and detaining subjects, determining who should be prosecuted, collecting evidence, and granting clemency after conviction? The answers to these questions helped set the norms for transitional justice in the postwar era and today contribute to strategies for addressing problematic areas of international law. Examining the complex moral, ethical, legal, and political issues surrounding the Allied prosecution project, from the first investigations during the war to the final release of prisoners in 1958, Japanese War Criminals shows how a simple effort to punish the guilty evolved into a multidimensional struggle that muddied the assignment of criminal responsibility for war crimes. Over time, indignation in Japan over Allied military actions, particularly the deployment of the atomic bombs, eclipsed anger over Japanese atrocities, and, among the Western powers, new Cold War imperatives took hold. This book makes a unique contribution to our understanding of the construction of the postwar international order in Asia and to our comprehension of the difficulties of implementing transitional justice.

Title:      The Boy from Boort
Hank Nelson was an academic, film-maker, teacher, graduate supervisor and university administrator.

Title:      Somewhere in Asia
From 1941 to 1975, as a series of military conflicts gripped Asia and the Pacific, Australian journalism was dominated by war reporting from the region. Torney-Parlicki (history, U. of Melbourne) argues that the reporting went beyond the usual discussion of military strategy and, in an important way.

Title:      Norn Lup? - A Journey of Railways, Roads and Wats
In memory of prisoners of war from WWII, siblings Rachel and Luke embarked on a 325km walk from Ban Pong to Sangkhla Buri in Thailand. Shadowing the footsteps of the F Force's treacherous forced march during the construction of the infamous Death Railway, and guided only by simple, and sometimes out of date, maps and curious locals, Rachel and Luke took whatever route was necessary. They walked along the still existing section of Death Railway, climbed dam walls, meandered along roads into remote villages and climbed the mountainous terrain of the Thai jungle. Along the way they were terrorised by dogs, constantly asked 'Where you going?' and spent their nights in wats, one even in a cave, experiencing first hand the kindness of the Thai people. Newly married, adventurous Rachel leaves her husband behind to venture out into the world with her brother. As she battles with the reality of her past, present and future, this expedition will not only be a test of endurance and strength but of relationships as well.
