Tokyo vice : an American reporter on the police beat in Japan by Jake Adelstein( )

2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 51 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the only American journalist ever to have been admitted to the insular Tokyo Metropolitan Police Press Club: a unique, firsthand, revelatory look at Japanese culture from the underbelly up. At nineteen, Jake Adelstein went to Japan in search of peace and tranquility. What he got was a life of crime ... crime reporting, that is, at the prestigious Yomiuri Shinbun . For twelve years of eighty-hour work weeks, he covered the seedy side of Japan, where extortion, murder, human trafficking, and corruption are as familiar as ramen noodles and sake. But when his final scoop brought him face to face with Japan?s most infamous yakuza boss?and the threat of death for him and his family?Adelstein decided to step down ... momentarily. Then, he fought back. In Tokyo Vice, Adelstein tells a riveting, often humorous tale of his journey from an inexperienced cub reporter?who made rookie mistakes like getting in a martial-arts battle with a senior editor?to a daring, investigative journalist with a price on his head. With its vivid, visceral descriptions of crime in Japan and an exploration of the world of modern-day yakuza that even few Japanese ever see, Tokyo Vice is a fascination, and an education, from first to last.

Le dernier des yakuzas : splendeur et décadence d'un hors-la-loi au pays du soleil-levant by Jake Adelstein( Book )

2 editions published in 2017 in French and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Jake Adelstein en a bien conscience : il ne s'en sortira pas vivant sans aide. Après avoir écrit un article sur Tadamasa Goto, il a tout le Yamaguchi-gumi à ses trousses. Partant du vieux principe selon lequel "les ennemis de mes ennemis sont mes amis", Jake Adelstein engage un ancien yakuza, Saigo, qui appartenait à la branche ennemie de Goto. En échange ? Jake doit écrire la biographie de son protecteur. A partir de la vie de cet homme qui a connu l'âge d'or des yakuzas, il dresse une fresque épique de la mafia japonaise, des années 1960 à nos jours. C'est Le Parrain au pays du Soleil-Levant, cela commence sur fond de tatouages sophistiqués et se termine dans les milieux de la finance. Entre-temps, les yakuzas ont perdu leur sens de l'honneur. (4e de couv.)
