    of bereaved family members further complicate the issue. John Breen’s edited volume Yasukuni, the War Dead and the Struggle for Japan’s Past explores the break in Sino-Japanese relations, and fills a gap in the literature (available in English) with balanced debate. Published on the cusp of Japanese leadership change, the text is a timely contribution which not only debates Koizumi’s Yasukuni problem, but also highlights the challenges that will face the incoming Prime Minister, Shinzo Abe. Yasukuni explores the intersection of politics, religion, history and memory; and the difficulties of managing this intersection, both domestically and in foreign relations. Memory is shown to be politicised and used as a tool of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and members of the Japanese diet, as a means of furthering various political goals.

Other texts of a similar length generally place the Yasukuni issue within the broader picture of Sino-Japanese relations; in focussing on one element of tension from multiple perspectives, Yasukuni gives voice to both academic analysis, and personal views. Although Breen’s intention…
