The World at War: Economic Background While the United States was still struggling to emerge from the Great Depression at the end of the s, and would do so partly because of the war, Japan had emerged from its own period of depression, which had begun in , by the mids. Many of the young soldiers mobilized into the Japanese army by the early s came from the rural areas, where the effects of the depression were devastating and poverty was widespread. Their commitment to the military effort to expand Japanese territory to achieve economic security can be understood partly in these terms. The depression ended in the mids in Japan partly because of government deficits used to expand greatly both heavy industry and the military. Internationally, this was a time when "free trade" was in disrepute. The great powers not only jealously protected their special economic rights within their colonies and spheres of influence, but sought to bolster their sagging economies through high tariffs, dumping of goods, and other trade manipulation.

Gaining a deep insight into human evolution, researchers have identified a mutation in a critical human gene as the source of several distinctive traits that make East Asians different from other races. The traits — thicker hair shafts, more sweat glands, characteristically identified teeth and smaller breasts — are the result of a gene mutation that occurred about 35, years ago, the researchers have concluded. The discovery explains a crucial juncture in the evolution of East Asians. But the method can also be applied to some other sites on the human genome. The DNA changes at these sites, researchers believe, mark the turning points in recent human evolution as the populations on each continent diverged from one another. The first of those sites to be studied contains the gene known as EDAR.

Researchers at Samsung Medical Center have found critical characteristics of Asian women with breast cancer, finding them to be younger and sometimes face a worse prognosis than Westerners. Breast cancer is known to occur mainly after menopause, according to studies that have shown 85 percent of cases arising in postmenopausal women in America and Europe. According to Samsung Medical Center SMC , however, around half of breast cancer cases in Asia occur in premenopausal women under 40 years old, indicating a sizeable epidemiological difference from the West. A joint research team set out to identify the characteristics of young Asian breast cancer patients who have not gone through menopause. Zhengyan Kan from Pfizer.
SUNDAY night's riot in Bradford came early in the British rioting season, the weather being not yet fine or hot enough for everyone to join in and express his outrage at the injustice of the world. There is nothing quite like rain, or even the mere possibility of rain, to soothe the savage breast. In Bradford, Asian youths clashed with white youths, and shops and cars were damaged or destroyed. The riot might at first sight indicate an inflamed state of race relations. Actually, the situation is much more nuanced: the riots demonstrate that Asian youth is becoming more anglicised, in the worst possible sense.
