Kitai Kazuo was born in Anshan (China) in 1944. From 1962 to 65 he studied art at Nihon University before embarking on a career in photography. The present book is Kitai's first publication, published in an attractive large format. Following on from the Ampo demonstrations of 1960, left wing and anti-establishment groups continued their vocal opposition against the Treaty of Mutual Co-operation and Security in general and American bases in Yokosuka in particular. As a student of photography in the arts department of Nihon University, Kitai was in the thick of it documenting political struggles of the '60s and '70s. The present work is an accomplished piece of student propaganda: The large grainy prints are particularly successful at contrasting the quick surges of violence at some of the student demonstrations with the uninformed nonchalance of life around the US bases. Very rare. No copy in OCLC. (Titus Boeder, 4/07)
