Description:

Previously published as The Bomb/ Tokyo/ Kodansha International, 1990. With discrimination and war as two main themes, this novel starts with a story of American workers, including Native Americans and Mexicans, who are exposed to radiation at a newly established nuclear testing ground in the U.S. in 1941. The story shifts through the war zone in the Pacific, Hiroshima, and finally to an apocalyptic ending. This novel, originally titled “Hiroshima,” was written by a contemporary novelist and peace activist who was known as the leader of the League of Citizens' Movements for Peace in Vietnam until it disbanded in 1973. 小田実『HIROSHIMA』(講談社 1981年) 1973年に解散した「ベトナムに平和を市民連合」の指導者として知られた現代作家による小説。差別と戦争をテーマに、1941年、米国の核実験場で働く白人、先住民、メキシコ人が被爆する話から始まる。舞台は太平洋戦争、広島の原爆ヘと移る。
