This is a history, of evolution of Japan's Nuclear capability, significantly different from the many that have hit the stands in recent Times on nuclear proliferation. And for good reasons too. This book is authored by one who as a Political activist has known the masses, the common people on the first-person basis, who as a Journalist and political commentator has known the minds of the Leaders and the administrators of Japan, through direct interaction with them, and who as an Academic holds Truth and facts too Sacred to be played with. The author, with these mainstays, weaves the Complex fabric of Japan's nuclear ambitions. The structure of the book thus mirrors all the important and relevant phases of Japans nuclear bomb capability. This way, he provides a vivid description of Japan's ambition or transforming itself from an economic giant into a plutonium giant. He traces the Strategic Importance of this development on the basis of hard fact collected from the Japanese sources. An attempt has been made in this book to examine the nuclear Policy of Japan, its External and internal compulsions. The book is a truthful Account of how nuclear Technology came to be developed in Japan, and it evaluates, in historical perspective, how nuclearisation and militarisation of Japan has changed the entire complexion of regional security. Enriched with Concrete facts from Japanese media, the book has presented an up-to-date information and well argued account of this trend in Japan's policy. Seldom we had a better insight into the problems facing this highly sensitive area. All the more, therefore, does this book deserve the attention of the scholars, experts and policy-makers.Printed Page: 188.
