Peter H. Brothers has done a phenomenal job bringing Honda a proper measure of respect in the English-speaking world, where Honda has long languished due to the perception that Godzilla is just a€˜kid stuff.a€™ If you have even the slightest interest in Japan's fantasy cinema, this book is an excellent starting point and reference guide.

Known primarily for directing such classic Japanese monster movies as Rodan, Mothra, Attack of the Mushroom People and the original Godzilla, Ishiro Honda (1911 a€“ 2011) has been an overlooked figure in mainstream international cinema. MUSHROOM CLOUDS AND MUSHROOM MEN is the first book to cover in English print Honda's life -- including his heretofore untold military service in Japan's Imperial Army during World War II -- as well as the first to comprehensively cover all 25 of his fantasy, science-fiction and monster movies. It is also the first to give objective and critical analysis of Honda's filmmaking methods, themes, concepts, as well as his relationships with his actors and staff.
