A photo book of Kikujiro Fukushima, a photographer representing postwar Japan. While running a watch shop in his hometown of Yamaguchi Prefecture, he was in the limelight with the documentary "Pikadon" (1961), which continued to chase the A-bomb survivors as an amateur photographer at the time. While continuing to pursue the intensifying struggle problems in various places, he began to feel doubts about the crackdown of the state and government, and since then he has been active in social issues such as student movement, politics / military, pollution, and welfare as his lifework. Marked by the public security police for his radical depiction of "dissidents and anti-states," he is a true news photographer who has maintained his style while being slaughtered, eavesdropped, and sometimes burned. This book is the first in the "Postwar Youth" series published by Sanichi Shobo since 1980. Through the security struggle and student activism of the 1960s and 1970s, Fukushima was greatly stimulated by the vitality of young people trying to build a new era with their own hands. A documentary that describes the hot feelings of young people and the many mistakes that the nation has made through the "University of Tokyo Struggle" and "Sanrizuka Struggle".
