Abstract:

An examination of the methods used by the Japanese in the successful suppression of insurgency in Manchuria in the nineteen-thirties. The Japanese official documents translated for this study comprise a report on collective hamlets published by the Manchukuo Ministry of Defense Advisory Department, an organization charged with the ultimate responsibility for the security of Manchuria, and eight documents on selected aspects of Japanese operations, particularly reports on pacification, propaganda, and Communist organization. The documents, chosen for their relevance to problems encountered in other counterinsurgencies, are supplemented by a commentary that analyzes the problems faced by the Japanese administrators, and the solutions found.
