The following paper will look at the Nanjing Massacre of 1937-38 and outline why it is that this incident continues to stay in the public spotlight even 70 years after the crime was committed. Specifically, the next several pages will assert that the major reason why Nanking is such a controversial and divisive issue in Sino-Japanese relations is because Japan obstinately refuses to acknowledge its war guilt and, instead, has allowed a flourishing industry to spring up wherein deniers are given a strong voice, are supported by the government, and have been able to secure the apparent goodwill of a sizable proportion of the public. As time allows, this essay will briefly describe Nanking, outline why it was a particularly cruel and horrific occupation, discuss the reluctance of the Japanese government to concede anything, highlight why China - as a burgeoning superpower - feels that it is owed far more than it has been given thus far, and conclude by citing the role of political elites and academic elites in allowing the controversy to drag on. In the final analysis, until Japan summons up the courage to silence those who wish to minimize Nanking (or deny its existence altogether) the controversy will not go away but will, instead, continue to grow steadily more acrimonious.
