'TOKYO - A nationalist textbook newly approved by the Tokyo government is driving the deepest wedge in Japan-China relations in decades, but few of the country's students have ever read it.

Though given away for free, the book titled "New History Textbook" is used by only 18 of 11,102 junior high schools in Japan, reflecting many teachers' concerns over its content. It has been denounced by the leading teachers' union, and is well to the right wing of mainstream public opinion. '

Was that article on CD? lol

Kings of Spin - so easy to fool the gullible masses.  They buy it every time.  Priceless!

drop to zero and they'll still revise it every four years

If the education department of Germany passed a text-book that erased half of the crimes commited by the Nazi,and claimed the invasions helped the victims in a way,and that the Nazi themselves were victims,we'd wonder how Europe would react.
It's not about how many schools are using the book.It's about how the book was acknowleged by the government.
This incident isn't even new,they do this every 4 years,going further each time.Ignore it now,and 4 years later more schools will be using it.
Before the demonstrations in Asia,the press insisted they'd persuade 1% of the schools to use the book this year,150% more than 4 years ago.

ilunga, the core issues are not really the textbooks but.......................

To Sir ilunga, M.P. British Paliament, East London

The real issue is not the textbooks but one emerging giant in Asia challenges another one to settle some old wounds and scores!

Another issue is political to stop Japan to become a permanent member in UN in the security council.

But the real issue is economic one, I believe CHINESE should not buy any japanese products because I understand the mentality of the CHINESE.

They want the hype, the cool and lowest price of consumer products, like japanese cars, eletrconics etc.

All the money  the Chinese earned is going to be into the Bank of Japan !!
