    Emiko Ohnuki-Tierney (Japanese: 大貫恵美子 -) is a noted anthropologist and the William F. Vilas Professor of Anthropology at the University of Wisconsin– is the author of fourteen single-authored books in English and in Japanese, in addition to numerous articles. Her books have been translated into many other languages, including Italian, Korean, Polish and Russian.   "Emiko Ohnuki-Tierney's book is designed to challenge Western perceptions of the kamikaze generation.
