A comprehensive and fascinating account of electrical and electronics history Much of the infrastructure of today's industrialized world arose in the period from the outbreak of World War I to the conclusion of World War II. It was during these years that the capabilities of traditional electrical engineering—generators, power transmission, motors, electric lighting and heating, home appliances, and so on—became ubiquitous. Even more importantly, it was during this time that a new type of electrical engineering—electronics—emerged. Because of its applications in communications (both wire-based and wireless), entertainment (notably radio, the phonograph, and sound movies), industry, science and medicine, and the military, the electronics industry became a major part of the economy. Dawn of the Electronic Age?explores how this engineering knowledge and its main applications developed in various scientific, economic, and social contexts, and explains how each was profoundly affected by electrical technologies. It takes an international perspective and a narrative approach, unfolding the story chronologically. Though a scholarly study (with sources of information given in endnotes for engineers and historians of science and technology), the book is intended for the general public.?Ultimately, it tells the story of the development of a new realm of engineering and its widespread applications during the remarkable and tragic period of two world wars and the decades in between.

The most daring book ever written about the Japanese, Japan Unmasked brings into focus postwar manifestations of immaturity, bribery, corruption, and other malpractices which taint the national behavior, educational system, political and business worlds of modern-day Japan.

He also tells how the Japanese have turned their defeated nation into one of the economic and industrial giants of the world, and presents a qualified look into the future of the role Japan may come to play in Asia. "Often they (Japanese diplomats) won't even open their mouths when it's absolutely imperative for the to do so... (but this book) is not notable for its discretion." Life Magazine -- Asian Edition "Ichiro Kawasaki found himself sacked for that most undiplomatic sin of all -- speaking out."
