Japan: a history of the workers' struggles in Kamagasaki

The article below was sent to the ICC by a comrade in Japan: it describes the emergence and decline of the squatters' and day-workers' movements which have marked the life of several Japanese cities - more particularly Osaka in this case - since the collapse of the Japanese economic "bubble" at the beginning of the 1990s, to the present day.

The origins of socialist thought in Japan - John Crump

Socialism first gained a major foothold in Japan after the revolution and the subsequent Meiji restoration of 1868. Against the background of the rapid development of capitalism in Japan after the revolution, and the accompanying emergence of the working class, this study shows how early Japanese socialists drew on both Western influences and elements from traditional Japanese culture. This book made an original contribution to the study of Japan in the 1980s, its unique perspective shines a bright light on debates still relevant today.
