Excerpt from John Dower’s new book

I had the privilege of interviewing John Dower yesterday for the educational DVD (2011 release) of my film ANPO. John had served as the historical advisor on my film and because I chose to tell the story of ANPO more as a collage than as a conventionally narrated “documentary”, his comments on the educational DVD will prove invaluable to both educators, students and the average viewer interested in exploring the history further. In the meantime, an excerpt from his long-awaited new book, Culture of War, is up. His prose, always brilliant, positively glows, animated by his simmering outrage.

    I teach at Oberlin College and my latest research has been on the American nuclear testing program in the Pacific. I was so excited to learn of this new film and to see the trailer for it!

    Hi Sylvia,
    I actually just got an email from your colleague at Oberlin, Ann Sherif,
    saying she hopes to invite my film to Oberlin soon. Unfortunately the Lucky Dragon
    incident could not make it into my film but I think you’ll find my film interesting
    regardless. Thank you for your interest and for liking my trailer! I don’t know if you read
    Japanese, but I’ve been tweeting a fair amount under my name in Japanese, towards the
    film’s opening this Saturday in Tokyo. If you have any friends in Japan, please encourage them to go
    to the Japanese website (which they can link by clicking on 日本語)and going to the theater!
