    Tokyo Vice An American Reporter on the Police Beat in Japan eBook ´ Hardcover Tokyo Vice An American Reporter on the Police Beat in JapanEverything I ever learned that was important in my life I put in this book; it's almost the totality of what I have learned about Japan and right and wrong and the grey areas in between Giving it four stars is probably a little like as they say in Japanese 自画自賛 jiga jisan praising your own painting which is terribly immodest and not Japanese like at all but there you are It's not perfect but it's probably the best book I will ever write and I'm happy

    Tokyo Vice An American Reporter on the Police Beat in Japan eBook ´ Hardcover Tokyo Vice An American Reporter on the Police Beat in JapanWow Double Wow Did I say wow? Jake Adelstein is an amazing superhero and a total douchebag This book made me realize how potently similar the profession of Intelligence Officer and Reporter are The only real difference is that in Reporting you protect your sources and in espionage you burn themAdelstein protects his sources while putting his family and friends at risk He knows three forms of martial arts speaks several languages and happens to have a Japan fetish Whether he really is CIA or no he tells a ripping and admirably honest story which is as much Ethnography as it is JournalismAfter two days with this book I come away infinitely informed on Japanese culture and history than before Besides a great story Adelstein informs the reader on what could be a very difficult topic clearly Kudos Jake

    Tokyo Vice An American Reporter on the Police Beat in Japan eBook ´ Hardcover Tokyo Vice An American Reporter on the Police Beat in JapanVery mixed feelings about this one I never got over my distrust as Adelstein as a narrator a judgment mainly rooted in my own time spent in Japan and the incongruousness of the hardboiled poorly constructed and ego centered writing alongside claims of serious and altruistically motivated journalism I don't think those things hard living and altruism are inherently contradictory but in this book the claims toward both mostly serve the cause of making Jake Adelstein seem like an awesome bilingual pulp novel journo stud come to life Which fine it's your memoir buddy I didn't stop reading though because there is valuable information here The yakuza are overly romanticized and it's important to reveal them for who they are racketeers and sex traffickers exploiting the most vulnerable members of society with a thin veneer of honor and tradition and some admittedly badass tattoos Japan is also overly exoticized and there are few books written about the coun
