Win Apocalypse Then: American and Japanese Atomic Cinema, 1951–1967 Book from McFarland!

Special Thanks to Mike Bogue
Publisher McFarland & Company, Inc. is offering SciFi Japan readers a chance to win a copy of the book Apocalypse Then: American and Japanese Atomic Cinema, 1951–1967 from author Mike Bogue (G-FAN, Scary Monsters Magazine).
The United States, the only country to have dropped the bomb, and Japan, the only one to have suffered its devastation, understandably portray the nuclear threat differently on film. American science fiction movies of the 1950s and 1960s generally proclaim that it is possible to put the nuclear genie back in the bottle. Japanese films of the same period assert that once freed the nuclear genie can never again be imprisoned. In this book, Bogue examines genre films from the two countries released between 1951 and 1967 — including GODZILLA (1954), THE MYSTERIANS (1957), THE INCREDIBLE SHRINKING MAN (1957), ON THE BEACH (1959), THE LAST WAR (1961) and DR. STRANGELOVE (1964) — to show the view from both sides of the Pacific.
