Comics god Osamu Tezuka's darkest work, MW is a chilling picaresque of evil. Steering clear of the supernatural as well as the cuddly designs and slapstick humor that enliven many of Tezuka's better-known works, MW explores a stark modern reality where neither divine nor secular justice seems to prevail. This willfully "anti-Tezuka" achievement from the master's own pen nevertheless pulsates with his unique genius. Michio Yuki has it all: looks, intelligence, a pedigree as the scion of a famous Kabuki family, a promising career at a major bank, legions of female admirers. But underneath the sheen of perfection lurks a secret with the power to shake the world to its foundations. During a boyhood excursion to one of the southern archipelagos near Okinawa, Yuki barely survived exposure to a poison gas stored at a foreign military facility. The leakage annihilated all of the island's inhabitants but was promptly covered up by the authorities, leaving Yuki as an unacknowledged witness--one whose sense of right and wrong, however, the potent nerve agent managed to obliterate. Now, fifteen years later, Yuki is a social climber of Balzacian proportions, infiltrating the worlds of finance and politics by day while brutally murdering children and women by night--perversely using his Kabuki-honed skills as a female impersonator to pass himself off as the women he's killed. His drive, however, will not be satiated with a promotion here and a rape there. Michio Yuki has a far more ominous objective: obtaining MW, the ultimate weapon that spared his life but robbed him of all conscience. There are only two men with any hope of stopping him: one, a brilliant public prosecutor who struggles to build a case against the psychopath; the other, a tormented Catholic priest, Iwao Garai, who shares Yuki'ls past--and frequently his bed. Serialized beginning in 1976 in Big Comic magazine, where Tezuka's trailblazing medical thriller Ode to Kirihito had appeared a few years earlier, MW probes the complexities of homoeroticism as well as the reality of extensive U.S. military presence in Japan. The result is as bracing today as it was thirty years ago. "Darker than you think-than you want to think […] MW took on the stuff of today's headlines some thirty years ago." -The Agony Column "MW is the newest of those masterpieces to be translated into English, and like everything else with [Tezuka's] name on it, you are cheating yourself out of one of the best graphic novels out right now if you don't read it." -Advanced Media Network "Tezuka spins an entertaining, slightly preposterous yarn, serving up more plot twists, car chases, and gender-bending costume changes than Dressed to Kill and The Manchurian Candidate combined." -popcultureshock "You'll stare at the page, eyes popping and muttering, 'I cannot believe I just read that.' But you did, and it worked, and you turn the page." -David Welsh, Comic World News

IGNITING IDENTITY
68,00 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The brutal rape of a twelve-year-old Okinawan girl in 1995 enraged the local population and led to a chain of unprecedented events, which endangered the relationship between the US and Japan. International media soon reported on the outrage as merely an expression of anti-US sentiments, but although the violent crime was acted out by three US servicemen, Tokyo was to receive the blame. Igniting Identity reveals a hidden meaning of the raped girl as a powerful symbol of identity and challenges the notion of Japan as an homogenous nation. Strømmen explores how Okinawans emphasize post-material values like peace, democracy, spirituality, environment and women`s rights in defining a separate identity to mainland Japan. The term trichotomization is introduced to show how this identity process became an important tool in recruiting the US as an ideological ally to help Okinawa achieve its goals with Tokyo.By emphasizing the historical, social and political context of the chain of events that followed the rape, Igniting Identity will appeal to scholars in communication studies, social anthropology, history, and politics.

At War with Words
139,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

In a new era of global conflict involving non-state actors, At War with Words offers a provocative perspective on the role of language in the genesis, conduct and consequence of mass violence. Sociolinguistics meets political science and communication studies in order to examine interdependence between armed conflict and language. As phenomena attributed only to humans, both armed conflict and language are visible on two axes: language as war discourse, and language as a social policy subject to change by the victorious. In this unique volume, internationally known contributors provide original data and new insights that illuminate roles of text and talk in creating identities of enemies, justifications for violence, and accompanying propaganda. Incorporating contexts from around the world, this collection's topics range from a radio talk show hosts' inflammatory rhetoric to the semantic poverty of the lexicon of mass destruction. The first eight chapters discuss war texts. How does language serve as a vehicle to incite, justify, and resolve an armed conflict? Case studies from the US to China, and from Austria to Ghana detail such a progression to, through, and from war. The book's second part reflects the understanding of language as a symbol of power achieved by a victorious side in war. Five chapters discuss cases from Okinawa, Croatia, Cyprus, Palau, and Northern Ireland. Edited by a sociolinguist and a political scientist, At War with Words includes chapters by Michael Billig, Paul Chilton, Ruth Wodak and a dozen other prominent linguists and communications scholars. This book will be of interest to linguists, media scholars and political scientists, but is also accessible to any reader interested in language and war. Teachers will find particular chapters useful as course material in discourse analysis, language policy, war and peace studies, conflict resolution, mass communication, and other related disciplines.
