9780873383431: Quiet Passages: The Exchange of Civilians Between the United States and Japan During the Second World War

In 1939 the U.S. Department of State created the Special Division to handle some of the problems that the complexity of modern warfare had created for diplomatic means. During the Second World War, those duties came to include the implementation of civilian personnel exchanges between the 'arsenal of democracy' and the Axis nations. Quiet Passages is the study of the role in carrying out such exchanges with the Japanese government, which was more complex than the exchanges conducted with Germany and Italy. The study is based on records and files of the Special Division, corroborated as needed by other sources. This study also is half of the told story, a similar study of the Japanese side was not available for this publishing.
