Scales of Injustice is a collection of Loa Ho’s twenty-one short stories on various kinds of unfairness experienced by many Taiwanese people during Japanese rule. Unlike other translated versions that arrange the stories chronologically according to when they were written, this edition is discreetly sectioned by the translator Darryl Sterk into six parts, namely “In the Olden Days”, “Old Meets New”, “Growing Cane, Eating Opium”, “(Resisting) the Police Lord”, “Loa Ho’s Story”, and “It’s All We Can Ever Do”. The order of these parts show progress, from stories set in an older period and a rather rustic setting, to a more modern age in bigger cities; concurrently, the presence of oppressive forces become increasingly pervasive.
