Japan Changes History Again In New Middle School Textbooks

Japan’s Ministry of Culture recently announced its new selection of textbooks for Japanese middle schools. The textbooks make bold geographical claims, such as the Diaoyu (aka Senkaku) and Dokdo (aka Takeshima) islands fundamentally belonging to Japan. In addition to these claims, which have continuously strained the country’s relations with China and Korea respectively, the textbooks have also changed the wording in descriptions of the Nanjing Massacre, shifting blame away from Japan. Chinese netizens were not surprised, and many again suggest boycotting Japanese goods.
