Synopsis: In the 1930s and '40s, Japanese rulers in Manchukuo enlisted writers and artists to promote imperial Japan's modernization program. Ironically, the cultural producers chosen to spread the imperialist message were previously left-wing politically. In Glorify the Empire, Annika A. Culver explores how these once anti-imperialist intellectuals produced avant-garde works celebrating the modernity of a fascist state and reflecting a complicated picture of complicity with, and ambivalence toward, Japan's utopian project. A groundbreaking work, this book magnifies the intersection between politics and art in a rarely examined period of Japanese history.

Book Description: A provocative work examining how Japanese rulers in Manchukuo enlisted formerly left-wing writers and artists from Japan to produce modernist works extolling the virtues of the fascist state’s new utopian empire.

Book Description University of British Columbia Press. Paperback. Book Condition: new. BRAND NEW, Glorify the Empire: Japanese Avant-garde Propaganda in Manchukuo, Annika A. Culver, In the 1930s and '40s, Japanese political architects of the Manchukuo project in occupied northeast China realised the importance of using various cultural media to promote a modernisation program in the region, as well as its expansion into other parts of Asia. Ironically, the writers and artists chosen to spread this imperialist message had left-wing political roots in Japan, where their work strongly favoured modernist, even avant-garde, styles of expression. In Glorify the Empire, Annika A. Culver explores how these once anti-imperialist intellectuals produced modernist works celebrating the modernity of a fascist state and reflecting a complicated picture of complicity with, and ambivalence towards, Japan's utopian project. During the war, literary and artistic representations of Manchuria accelerated, and the Japanese-led culture in Manchukuo served as a template for occupied areas in Southeast Asia. A groundbreaking work, Glorify the Empire magnifies the intersection between politics and art in a rarely examined period in Japanese history. Bookseller Inventory # B9780774824378
