This study focuses on Japanese wartime policies and their implementation, and the consequent effects these policies had on the local population. Each ethnic group, including the European community, is examined to evaluate its reaction and response to the Japanese military government and Japanese policies towards these. The group effects of the Japanese period on post-war developments help to evaluate the significance and influence of this short domination by a non-Western.
