Jingyi Li from New Books Network interviews Sven Saaler, author of Men in Metal: A Topography of Public Bronze Statuary in Modern Japan.

Men in Metal is an examination of how the elites of the modern Japanese nation-state went about constructing an iconography of national heroes to serve their agenda of instilling national (and nationalist) thinking into the masses.
