Most New High School Textbooks Describe Takeshima, Senkaku Islands as Japanese

Most new textbooks approved for use in high schools starting in April 2014 describe the Senkaku Islands and Takeshima as Japanese possessions, the education ministry announced Tuesday.

Yet another example of increasing nationalism in Japan. While the current territorial dispute originally dates back to 1952, a decade ago you wouldn't have heard anything about this on the news. This is also not the first time there has been controversy about Japanese history books.
