Read this classic exploration of political violence, traditional samurai values and right wing nihilism. Isao is a young, engaging patriot, and a fanatical believer in the ancient samurai ethos. He turns terrorist, organising a violent plot against the new industrialists, who he believes are threatening the integrity of Japan and usurping the Emperor's rightful power. As the conspiracy unfolds and unravels, Mishima brilliantly chronicles the conflicts of a decade that saw the fabric of Japanese life torn apart.

Two sets of cousins, Boer and Brit, find their destinies inexorably intertwined in the politi and mayhem that led up to and encompassed the Anglo Boer War of 1899 - 1902. From Transvaal to Victorian England, the cousins form strong bonds that are tested on the battlefields of South Africa. Martin de Winter, nurtured to lead his country, Transvaal, into the twentieth century, instead finds himself excelling as a gifted young general, fighting a desperate war to keep his nation from ruin, all the while being haunted by his love for a British woman. James Henderson, cavalry officer, is forced by his father, a military aristocrat, to marry or face expulsion from his regiment. Bound for India, the regiment is diverted to South Africa to fight the Boers. James rides to glory and honour but is at the mercy of his loyalty to his country and his compassion for his Boer family. In the drawing rooms of Cape Town and Pretoria, Stefanie de Winter, celebrated pianist, is viewed from both sides with suspicion. Fiercely loyal to her brother Martin, but in love with a British officer, she embarks on a dangerous path to keep them both. Karel and Rudolf de Winter, twin brothers devoted to each other and their horses to the exclusion of all else, fight a battle against the bullet that might separate them forever. Through anger, injustice, and betrayal, the family discovers that there is a force stronger than war.

In short stories, novellas, and novels, two major postwar Japanese novelists, Mishima Yukio and Oe Kenzaburo, have explored the alienated life of twentieth-century Japan with an unsparing eye and at times a savage sense of humour. In this study, Susan Napier demonstrates that each author's vivid and often perverse depictions of sex, impotence, emperor worship, and violence are matched by images of romantic alternative realities which offer characters some escape from the banality of their lives. In the case of early works like Mishima's novella The Sound of Wolves' or Oe's short story Prize Stock, the mythic contrast to industrialized society may be objectified in the setting. Our Era, the pain of modern life and the possibility of an alternative may be implied by the characters' sexual longings. In still others, like Mishima's Patriotism and Oe's Seventeen, overt explorations of characters' political beliefs and actions (or inaction) may appear to offer straightforward political messages.
