John Piper, a young American reporter, stumbles upon the shrouded history of Japan's pursuit of an atomic bomb, and discovers that some of the forces involved in the original plan are still very much alive. They are changed in accordance with modern times, but still mysterious, menacing.... As he searches for truth in a land of high-tech labs, ancient religious rites, economic competition, unbreakable social conventions, and silent gardens - the cacophany of contradictions that is Japan - Piper finds himself learning as much about that country's present as he does about its past. Author was Washington Post co-bureau chief in Tokyo for several years. Remainder dot on bottom edge.
