No Study of the history of the Japanese socialist movement may be made without reference to the work and thought of Sen Katayama (1859–1933). Pioneer socialist, publisher of the first successful Japanese labor newspaper, and representative of Japanese socialism in the camps of the international movement, Katayama's career is a veritable mirror of the Japanese socialist movement.
Dr. Kublin is Assistant Professor of History at Brooklyn College.
Kawakami Hajime says in his Jijoden (Autobiography), II, 141, that he was told (in 1932) that many articles then being published under Katayama's signature were actually written by someone else.—Editor
