Greater East Asia Co-Prosperity Sphere

The exhibit was created by historians of Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi enrolled in Narratives of World War II in the Pacific in Fall 2018. We welcome you to enjoy the various topics surrounding the Greater East Asia Co-Prosperity Sphere. A special thanks to the TAMUCC Special Collections and Archives at the Mary and Jeff Bell Library.

The Greater East Asia Co-Prosperity Sphere was the attempt of the Japanese  to control the countries of Eastern Asia under the guise of unity and pushing out Western influence. The methods of the Co-Prosperity Sphere were included as tools that impacted the following: Resource Allocation in Greater East Asia, propaganda in Java, and effects on the colonized countries.
