Riassunto: War Without Mercy has been hailed by the New York Times as one of the most original and important books to be written about the war between Japan and the United States. In this monumental history, professor John Dower reveals a hidden, explosive dimension of the Pacific War-race-while writing what John Toland has called a landmark book . . . a powerful, moving, and evenhanded history that is sorely needed in both America and Japan. 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 lesson that the postwar generations need most . . . with eloquence, crushing detail, and power.
Review: Dower's premise in War without Mercy is a startling one: Though Western allies were clearly headed for victory, pure racism fueled the continuation and intensification of hostilities in the Pacific theater during the final year of World War II, a period that saw as many casualties as in the first five years of the conflict combined. Dower doesn't reach this disturbing conclusion lightly. He combed through piles of propaganda films, news articles, military documents, cartoons--even entries in academic journals in researching this book. Though his case is strong, Dower minimizes other factors, such as the protracted negotiations between the West and the Japanese.

From the dust jacket: "On the eve of Pearl Harbor, the Japanese were, in American and British eyes, an inferior race of myopic, pint-sized people whose military incompetence was well known. They were, it was reported, poor jungle fighters, inept pilots, timid strategists, and unimpressive navigators. While Westerners, in Japanese eyes, were a people so degenerate and soft that their will to resist would probably crumble at a single blow. Within months, the inferior Japanese had become superhuman in the Western mind: the greatest jungle fighters in history, single-minded fanatics ready to die for their emperor to the last child. To the Japanese, the Westerners had become atrocious and implacable demons. " EDG_362 ; 399 pages. Codice libro della libreria 23024
