Zengakuren: Japan's Revolutionary Students - Book scanned

Just put this up in the library.
Definitely a very good read. Take a look if you're interested in this period of struggle. Btw, it would be nice if we could post PDFs to the library? Or maybe I don't know how to do it.

Zengakuren: Japan's Revolutionary Students

This is an excellent historical introduction to the period of Japanese student radicalism that began after the war in the wake of the increasingly ineffective strategies of the Japanese Communist Party and which culminated in massive social unrest and change around the Japanese school system and society in general.
