Duke University (Durham, NC 27705-4677)
Dean J. Smith (Project Director: March 2020 to present)
Open Access edition of Thought Crime: Ideology and State Power

In Thought Crime Max M. Ward explores the Japanese state's efforts to suppress political radicalism in the 1920s and 1930s. Ward traces the evolution of an antiradical law called the Peace Preservation Law, from its initial application to suppress communism and anticolonial nationalism—what authorities deemed thought crime—to its expansion into an elaborate system to reform and ideologically convert thousands of thought criminals throughout the Japanese Empire.
