CRITICS PAN AUTHOR FOR DAMAGING HISTORICAL RESEARCH|"灣生"作者身世造假 學者:重傷台灣史研究

Following revelations that Tanaka Mika falsified her personal background. Taiwanese writer Zhang Dachun said that if the public were more cultivated literary literacy, there would have been more people questioning the accuracy of the book when it was published. Meanwhile, Professor Chen Fang-ming, who endorsed Tanaka's book, said that she took advantage of Taiwanese people's kindness, and by deceiving the public, she has done a great harm to Taiwanese historical research. Tanaka Mika, or Chen Hsuan-ju, the author of the best-selling book "Wansei Back Home", was reported to have falsifed her personal history, assuming the identity of a descendant of "wansei".The news shocked literary circles. Academics and writers questioned the veracity of the book. ==ZHANG DA-CHUN AUTHOR== If the public are more cultivated in reading, I think there will be more people questioning the historical accuracy of the book as soon as it was published. ==HUANG CHUN-MING author== She violated the most basic principle, which is writing faithfully. Non-fiction is information. It requires the author to report truth and depict the incident. Professor Chen Fang-ming, who endorsed Tanaka's book, said that Tanaka took advantage of Taiwanese people's kindness, and through deceiving the public, she has done great harm to Taiwanese historical research. ==CHEN FANG-MING Prof. NCCU Dept. Taiwan Lit.== Her deception has caused harm to Wansei, and an even greater harm to society. That's why I said she took advantage of the public's kindness. This is malicious. Chen said that Chief Executive Officer of Yuan-Liou Publishing Co., Wang Jung-wen's credibility and Tanaka's good writing style were what made him recommend the book. Although "Wansei Back Home" successfully brought the issue of "wansei" to the public's attention, Chen thinks that its faults do not offset its merits. Therefore, he called on the author and the publishing house to tell the truth to the public.
