A Hiroshima Approach to Peace Studies: 13 Lectures on War and Peace [Hiroshima Hatsu no Heiwagaku]

Edited by the Hiroshima Peace Institute,
Published in August 2021 by Horitsu Bunka Sha

Book Description

More than 75 years have passed since the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. As the Hibakusha, the survivors of the A-bomb attacks, grow older it becomes essential to convey their memories and interpret their experiences to new generations. This urgency, alongside a fervent desire to work pragmatically towards a peaceful future, are the driving forces behind the publication of the new book, A Hiroshima Approach to Peace Studies [Hiroshima Hatsu no Heiwagaku].

The book consists of chapters contributed by the 13 professors at the Hiroshima Peace Institute of Hiroshima City University. These authors, from many countries and working in a variety of academic disciplines, approach their subjects fully cognizant that their work stems from an academic institute situated in the first A-bombed city, Hiroshima. From this common origin each works to analyze the significance and influence of the experiences of Hiroshima and the challenges we face to sustainable peacebuilding in today’s diverse international society, providing perspectives from multiple national and academic vantage points.

Each author approaches their topic with the following questions in mind. 1) What does the word “Hiroshima” symbolize? How is Hiroshima’s self-image shared, reflected or challenged in other countries? 2) Is it possible to maintain and achieve peace in a non-violent way, counter to the logic of “peace through power”? and 3) How can nuclear issues be perceived as global issues, including global environmental issues?

This book explores the conditions fundamental to building a peaceful world, reframing the lessons of A-bomb experiences of Hiroshima through multiple theoretical and national lenses, and diagnosing the factors that threaten human survival and dignity.
