" In this provocative, perceptive book, Russell Braddon argues that the Japanese had bought to post-war industry precisely that spirit of daring and devotion that deal with such stunning victories in 1942, so that the puny industrial machine that survived the war has long since become a juggernaut. What made it a juggernaut, however, is not so much technology as the unique spirit of those who designed and man it. Can the West now find the spirit, the author asks, to counter this new form of aggression? " -- From the front fold over panel blurb. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. (6), VII-VIII, 9-246 pages, .
