Japan: The important Historian Dr. Hata speaks on World War II issues (English subtitles)

Great that this has English subtitles. Normally only in Japanese, which is like locking it in a vault:

"Professor HATA Ikuhiko graduated from the University of Tokyo in 1956 and received his PhD from the same institution in 1974. He worked as chief historian of the Japanese Ministry of Finance between 1956 and 1976 and during this period from 1963 to 1965 he was also a research assistant at Harvard University. After resigning his post at the Finance Ministry Hata served as a visiting professor at Princeton University from 1977 to 1978 and then was a history professor at Takushoku University from 1980 to 1993, at Chiba University from 1994 to 1997, and at Nihon University from 1997 to 2002.

"Hata's scholarship has been widely praised. Historian Edward Drea, for instance, has written that Hata's "published works are models of scholarship, research, accuracy, and judicious interpretation", and Joshua A. Fogel, a historian of China at York University, concurs that Hata "is an eminent scholar who has for over forty years been writing numerous excellent studies of Japan at war.""
秦的学识被广泛的赞赏。比如,历史学家Edward Drea写到:秦出版过的作品是学识,研究,准确性,明智的解释的模范。在纽约大学的一位研究中国历史的历史学家Joshua A. Fogel同意秦是一个杰出的学者,秦连续40年写了许多卓越的对于日本战争时期的研究。

South Korea latest US ally to join AIIB

Washington looks increasingly isolated as another important ally joins the China-backed Asia Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB). Australia and Taiwan could be next, as a deadline for founding members approaches.

First comes Comfort Women Forced Sex Slavery issue and then will come the Nanking Massacre of 300,000 by the Imperial Japanese Amy. Historians are busy these days.
