The author of this book examines the nuclear theme in Japanese intellectual and artistic life. Author John Treat compares the insight of Japanese writers into the lessons of modern atrocity to the knowledge offered by Holocaust writers in Europe and practitioners of nuclear criticism in America. In addition to including samples of writing from the earliest survival writers, present-day Japanese intellectuals, and others, the author explores the implications of these works for critical, literary, and cultural history. An extensive bibliography is included.
