LONDON (PRWEB) June 26, 2012
In her new book “Cost of Freedom” (published by AuthorHouse), Tokiko Matsudaira writes in detail of a number of wars fought in Asia – from those fought between China and Japan, the fights that led up to the colonization of Korea and the American Vietnam War.
Matsudaira also discusses the meaning of nuclear war, and for Japan, the meaning of the devastation caused by the atomic bombs that hit Nagasaki and Hiroshima at the end of World War II.
“To this present day there is still much talk about nuclear weapons and how we try to avoid a nuclear war,” Matsudaira explains.
“Cost of Freedom” not only details the battles fought and the lives lost, but also explores the uncertain financial age of the past and how it has returned to deliver another Great Depression and recession.
An excerpt from “Cost of Freedom”:
“Wasn’t it ever a game of ‘lambs being led to the slaughter’, a game of futures, where we are axed down to provide another with our personal or professional futures? It sounds like an incredible joke to say they ask us to die for them.
The nuclear threat may be a part of the problem, for no one can fight a nuclear threat. It is doubtless a bad choice but may be a necessary one under the circumstances.”
“In spite of the financial problems, we seem to return to the talk of the fear of nuclear bombs.”
