Pure invention : how Japan's pop culture conquered the world

Alt, Matt2021
Books
Japan made itself rich after the Second World War by selling us the things we needed. But it conquered hearts by creating the things we wanted. A wild and nostalgic history of the creators behind the gadgets, stories and ideas the world learned to love and need, as well as an exploration of the ripple effects and influence their ideas would come to have, 'Pure Invention' is a detective story about an unsung chapter of globalisation that has touched us all and obsessed millions.
