Godzilla on My Mind by William Minoru Tsutsui
Book DescriptionFifty years ago this October, Godzilla (Gojira in Japanese) crawled out of his radioactive birthplace onto the silver screen to cut his first swath of destruction through Tokyo and into...well, if not into our hearts, at least our imaginations. Today Godzilla stands as a popular icon of Japan (the third most recognizable Japanese celebrity according to a New York Times poll) as well as of that destructive rage that dwells within almost all of us. In this short reflection on Godzilla, Bill Tsutsui, a life-long fan and professional historian gives us a light-hearted look at 50 years of the big, green, radioactive lizard. He explores how the original Godzilla film was created and how it grew into a global phenomenon. Through humor and anecdotes, Godzilla on My Mind explores his lasting cultural impact in Japan and on popular culture worldwide.
