Eri Hotta, former research fellow at the National Graduate Institute for Policy Studies in Tokyo, talked about her book, Japan 1941: Countdown to Infamy, in which she examines the attack on Pearl Harbor and entry into World War II from the Japanese perspective. In her book, she recounts the inner deliberations that led to the attack, which included many who wished to avoid war but continue Japan’s territorial expansion and a fractured political landscape that included two authorities, the emperor and the civilian government. Eri Hotta spoke with historian Ian Buruma at the Carnegie Council for Ethics in International Affairs in New York City. close
