Описание: How is it that the developed world spends billions of dollars annually on weaponry, while the poor of the developing world have no access to education, medicines or even clean drinking water?

Описание: When nerve gas was dispersed in Tokyo's subway system in March 1995, Japanese and non-Japanese alike were shocked. Wasn't Japan supposed to be an
orderly, peaceful, and above all safe society with virtually no crime? Not so. Mark Schreiber dispels this stereotype with a fascinating book in which he chronicles some of Japan's most
astonishing crimes in the half-century since World War II: a bank robbery and murder in which the killings are carried out by poison; the theft of 300 million yen by a man who is able to
peacefully convince four bank employees to step outside of their car for a moment; and, of course, the outrageous activities of Japan's most notorious religious group, AUM Supreme
The social and cultural circumstances attending many of the crimes are equally bizarre, and Schreiber addresses these, as well. Why did Okubo Kiyoshi's rape victims
continue meeting him for dates after he violated them? How did Japanese ethics step in, when the evidence didn't stand on its own, to condemn Miura Kazuyoshi for killing his wife?
Why did none of the journalists recording the murder of Nagano Kazuo try to intervene to try to save his life?
