Following the release of Clint Eastwood's epic film Letters from Iwo Jima, which was nominated for the Oscar for Best Picture, there has been a renewe d fascination and interest in the Japanese perspective on World War II. Thi s pathbreaking work of oral history is the first book ever to capture--in e ither Japanese or English--the experience of ordinary Japanese people durin g the war. In a sweeping panorama, Haruko Taya Cook and Theodore F. Cook take us from the Japanese attacks on China in the 1930s to the Japanese home front durin g the inhuman raids on Tokyo, Hiroshima, and Nagasaki, offering the first g limpses of how the twentieth century's most deadly conflict affected the li ves of the Japanese population. The book "seeks out the true feelings of th e wartime generation [and] illuminates the contradictions between the offic ial views of the war and living testimony" (Yomiuri Shimbun, Japan). Japan at War is a book to which Americans and Japanese will continue to turn for decades to come. With more than 30,000 copies sold to date, this edition features an updated cover designed to appeal to a new generation of readers.
