This introductory chapter highlights the negative view of the trial created by the existing literature on the trial, but then notes that there has been little legal analysis of the trial. It points out that such legal analysis is the purpose of this book, and that it is not intended to be a comprehensive history of the trial. While the book is a reappraisal of the trial, the point is also made that it is not intended to be a rehabilitation of the trial. The authors note their own linguistic limitations in taking on such a topic as neither speaks Japanese. The chapter then presents notes on usages and terminology, and sets out the structure of the book.
