...Atomic Bomb of the Truman and Atomic Bomb Harry Truman’s decision to drop atomic bomb in Japan is still alive in debates for its ethical implications. While some people consider it as an example of unethical political decision-making, for some others, it was the most ethical decision available at that point of time for Truman. Walker (2008, p. 1) points towards the fact that even without the use of atomic bombs, the number of deaths and casualties would not have been much less. For example, American citizens and soldiers were fed up with the four-year long war but the Japanese leadership was in no hurry to stop war though the Japanese cities were already under heavy fire bombing... bombers...

...atomic bombing. Certainly, selective... 1964 Tokyo Olympics Symbolizing a reacceptance to the global community and the end of a lengthy, depressing period for many Japanese, the 1964 Tokyo Summer Olympics was a moment to recognize and commemorate the progress and reemergence of Japan. This Japan was new and different from what it used to be in the eyes of the world; it was no longer a wartime foe, but a peaceful country that terrorized no one. In a surprisingly short time, the transition from distraught enemy to rebuilt friend was achieved in less than 2 decades. Japan had previously joined the United Nations and several other international organizations, but nothing matches the vision and splendor of an ...

...Atomic Bomb In my opinion, the reviewer did an outstanding job, which is based on how she managed to address the topic of the atomic bomb that hit Japan in 1945. According to studies, the bomb resulted to massive deaths. First, the US dropped the bomb in Hiroshima, killing thousands of people, days later while the Japanese were yet to come to terms with what had happened, the US struck again, this time in Nagasaki, consequences similar to those of Hiroshima (Miscamble, 2011). In the first paragraph, the reviewer commences the study by providing a summary on what she is going to address in the entire review. The reviewer claims that the idea of the atomic bomb came to existence during WWII... The Atomic...
