WINNER OF THE NATIONAL BOOK CRITICS CIRCLE AWARD AN AMERICAN BOOK AWARD FINALIST Now in paperback, War Without Mercy has been hailed by The New York Times as a€œone of the most original and important books to be written about the war between Japan and the United States.a€ In this monumental history, Professor John Dower reveals a hidden, explosive dimension of the Pacific Wara€”racea€”while writing what John Toland has called a€œa landmark book . . . a powerful, moving, and evenhanded history that is sorely needed in both America and Japan.a€ Drawing on American and Japanese songs, slogans, cartoons, propaganda films, secret reports, and a wealth of other documents of the time, Dower opens up a whole new way of looking at that bitter struggle of four and a half decades ago and its ramifications in our lives today. As Edwin O. Reischauer, former ambassador to Japan, has pointed out, this book offers a€œa lesson that the postwar generations need most . . . with eloquence, crushing detail, and power.a€The official translation of Shinmin no Michi was included as an appendix to Otto Tolischusa#39; important wartime book Tokyo ...
