520    "The Tokyo War Crimes Tribunal: Like its Nuremberg 
       counterpart, the Tokyo Trial was foundational in the field
       of international law. However, up to now, the persistent 
       notion of "victor's justice" in the existing historical 
       literature has made it difficult to treat it as such. 
       David Cohen and Yuma Totani seek to redress this by 
       cutting through persistent orthodoxies and ideologies that
       have plagued the trial. Instead they present it simply as 
       a judicial process, and in so doing reveal its enduring 
       importance for international jurisprudence. A wide range 
       of primary sources are considered, including court 
       transcripts, court exhibits, the majority judgment, and 
       five separate concurring and dissenting opinions. The 
       authors also provide comparative analysis of the Allied 
       trials at Nuremberg, resulting in a comprehensive and 
       empirically grounded study of the trial. The Tokyo 
       Tribunal was a watershed moment in the history of the Asia
       -Pacific region. This ground-breaking study reveals it is 
       of continuing relevance today"--|cProvided by publisher
