Hirohito and the Making of Modern Japan

Hirohito and the Making of Modern Japan - Herbert P. Bix Dr. Herbert Bix, who wrote this winner of a 2001 Pulitzer Prize deserves acclamation for his ability to write a work that is precise on both the sentence, paragraph, page, and book level. Although Dr. Bix's take may be fairly described as "America's take on Hirohito," it is well-researched, well-documented, flowing, and effusive, a true "lifetime reference work" that belongs in any good historical library and can be consulted with regard to fiction and non-fiction alike.

At 800 pages, this is not for the faint-hearted, but clearly Dr. Bix is well-informed and a superior stylist, resulting in a true prize-quality work.
