As a budding Tezuka scholar, I fail to understand raring this book anything less than 4 stars. Power bills the book as an academic examination of Tezuka's works and stylistic trends as they relate to Japanese history and the cultural movements that entailed in a post-WW2 environment. That's exactly what this book is, and unless Power has stretched the truth or inaccurately rendered historical events, I think she deserves applause for bringing to life in Englush such a studious treatment of Tezuka. I learned plenty from this book and its style, despite publication through a university press, did not turn me away at all.
