If you know anything about David Bergamini, who is the author of JAPAN’S IMPERIAL CONSPIRACY and died in 1983 at 54 in distress, please contact me. As I wrote in a number of articles in this blog, the translation of the volume continually has had a significant number of readers and does not decline even six years have passed since the net-publication after the translation completed.
In Japan the volume has been very much controversial but it nowadays seems to be a sort of public domain as an important material in fact in the area of modern Japanese history.
Nonetheless, as his obituary on New York Times, which once appeared on September 4 1983, was removed from their archives, his life in late years was obscured.
He wrote once about his distressed situation briefly in the introduction for a publication of extracted translation into Japanese.
As a translator of the volume and the man who is been very much admired by his work I am deeply concerned about what happened on him in those years.
To find out about the dark side of the publication in America and of the society as well I think that should be a following section of his work.
