Jacob HeilbrunnEmbracing Defeat arrives at an opportune moment...an extraordinarily illuminating book. Mr. Dower has deftly mixed history form the 'bottom up' and 'top down' to produce what is surely the most significant work to date on the postwar era in Japan. He writes with panache and with a keen eye for the absurdities of the Japanese-American encounter. Among other thinkers, his analysis of cartoons, a genre taken very seriously in Japan, is fascinating.
