Justifying the Use of the Atomic Bomb

The History Department is proud to announce the Third Annual James Jones Lecture on World War II Studies. It is our pleasure to welcome Professor Tsuyoshi Hasegawa of the Department of History at the University of California, Santa Barbara. He is the author of numerous monographs, including his most recent Racing the Enemy: Stalin, Truman and the Surrender of Japan, Belknap Press of Harvard University Press, 2005.

His latest book has been hailed by the New York Times as “a brilliant and definitive study of American, Soviet, and Japanese records of the last weeks of the war.” Justifying the Use of the Atomic Bomb: A Challenge expertly centers the Soviet involvement in the ending of the war. Typically “reated as a sideshow by traditional history,” Hasegawa argues that “the Soviet presence was crucial.” On Friday, October 31, at 7:00pm at the Doudna Fine Arts Center Lecture Hall, Hasegawa will illuminate more of his provacotive reassesment of World War II history on one of the most controvesial topics of military history.
