Reviews

"A historical bombshell...Compelling...The most controversial book yet on Japan's previous emperor." -- The Economist
"The author's virtuoso scholarship and accessible narrative invite us into Hirohito's world and change the way we think of recent history; his portrayal of a monarch rationalizing evil is superb." -- The New Yorker
""The triumph of Mr. Bix is that of a tailor able to assemble disparate scaps of material and sew them into a seamless whole."" -- The New York Times
"Myth-shattering...[T]his superb biography should jog loose a few suppressed memories." -- Newsweek
"Nothing published since the Berlin Wall's fall quite comes up to Herbert Bix's new book...It's a startling work-awesomely ambitious, faultlessly researched, daring in its thesis, and profound in its implications." -- Business Week
"Persuasive. . . . Bix proves, in an immensely readable 800 pages, that good imperial biography is still possible." -- The Times Literary Supplement
