Product Description

Throughout twenty-seven years of military occupation, U.S. public affairs activities aimed to persuade the local Okinawan public that the U.S. administration of Okinawa should be maintained. The U.S. maintains military bases around the globe, while advocating democratic ideals, including freedom of the press. Yet, while declaring the occupation of Okinawa necessary for the defence of democracy, the U.S. military administration vigorously repressed freedoms of speech, assembly, the media and self-determination. This landmark study explores and uncovers the labyrinthine manipulations and mechanisms established to continue to defend the hard deployment of military forces through the soft power techniques of public relations.
