DOMON, Ken and others. Black Terror. The US-Japan Security Treaty and People

(Tokyo): Shokosha, 1960. Third edition. Small quarto. 77 pages. Scarce volume documenting the opposition to the United States–Japan Security Treaty, which was the treaty that allowed the United States to maintain military bases on Japanese soil. The protests in 1959 and 1960 were staged in opposition to a 1960 revision of the original 1952 Security Treaty, and eventually grew to become the largest popular protests in Japan’s modern era. At the climax of the protests in June 1960, hundreds of thousands of protestors surrounded Japan’s National Diet building in Tokyo on nearly a daily basis, and large protests took place in other cities and towns all across Japan. The volume includes work by Ken Domon, Hiroshi Kitazawa, Shigeru Tamura, and Yosuke Yamahata. A good copy in stapled wrappers. Presentable copy of this scarce and fragile volume.
