Takemae Eiji

Professor, political scientist, and historian Eiji Takemae is an expert in what is known as "occupation history," or senryoshi, "which has become an important subfield of Japanese historical studies," according to reviewer Yoichi Nakano in Public Affairs. A groundbreaker in the field, Takemae researches and writes on the post-World War II occupation of Japan by the victorious American forces, particularly the reforms and influence of the American General Headquarters (GHQ) from 1945 to 1952.
