Japan in the Wake of World War II
by John W. Dower

How did Japan turn defeat to advantage? This book chronicles life in Japan during the American occupation, examining the period's many cultural tensions.



Poetry

Repair Repair
by C. K. Williams
Our Price: $21.00

This is the eighth book, and the most various yet, from a major American poet. Williams's subjects, again, are love; death; the secrets kept and the pain unexpressed among intimates; social disorder and despair; the waywardness of thought; and the metaphoric exultation of the natural world.
