Praise for Sayonara Amerika, Sayonara Nippon: A Geopolitical Prehistory of J-Pop:
“Michael K. Bourdaghs’s compellingly readable Sayonara Amerika, Sayonara Nippon imaginatively conceives an original account of how Japan, in the postwar and Cold War years, broke with a historical narrative centered on the United States military occupation and Japan’s subsequent confinement within the American imperium to enter the actual world.” — Harry Harootunian, Duke University, author of Overcome by Modernity: History, Culture, and Community in Interwar Japan
