Cui Bono?

(p.197) Conclusions
American Evangelists and Tuberculosis in Modern Japan

Elisheva A. Perelman

Hong Kong University Press

The Conclusion discusses the idea of cui bono in Japan’s moral enterprise between the Japanese government and the foreign, Protestant nondenominational evangelists, as well as within the fight against tuberculosis. Too often, the moral enterprise dictated that the beneficiaries of evangelical and governmental work were not those who required it the most, but those who served the agendas of each group. When it came to those who were not as beholden to either group, however, the beneficiaries of the work could be the victims of the scourge, not the bottom line. Thus, men like Vories and Teusler proved that the true question was not cui bono, but who should benefit?
