An excellent first choice read on Nagasaki, and certainly a good follow-up update read to some of older works.

As a short, readable work, it’s a good introduction which gives a nice overview and – being fresh off the printing press – includes the latest developments in the Nagasaki story. It is also an excellent introduction to the literature on Nagasaki; the book is peppered with generous suggestions for further reading.
