Abstract Comfort Women and Sex in the Battle Zone is an exhaustive examination of the controversial issue of comfort women, who provided sexual services to soldiers before and during World War II. This book provides extensive documents and narratives by witnesses to shed light on the reality of these women who worked in the battle zone. It also covers Japan's political and diplomatic disagreements with neighboring nations, in particular South Korea and China, over this issue as well as other international reactions, including the U.S. House of Representatives resolution that urged the Japanese government to apologize to former comfort women. This book is an English translation of the Japanese version first published in 1999 and reprinted several times, with additional sections covering recent developments--back cover.
