Guests: Aaron Skabelund, Ph.D., Assistant Professor in the Department of History at BYU; Jack Stoneman, Ph.D., Assistant Professor of Japanese at BYU.  In recent weeks, Japan’s leaders have begun shifting the nation away from the pacifist stance forced upon them when they lost World War II. They’re moving to expand the purpose of the Japanese military beyond mere self-defense.  Today we’re going to roll the clock back several centuries to a time when Japan was synonymous with great warriors – the samurai.  Link to the Guns, Scrolls and Swords exhibition.
