The Sons of Godzilla : From Destroyer to Defender - From Ridicule to Respect (1955-1995)
by Peter H. Brothers




Overview -
The "Sons of Godzilla" covers the Godzilla film sequels (not including those directed by Ishiro Honda which the author covered in "Mushroom Clouds and Mushroom Men") from 1955 - 1995. During that time Godzilla transformed from a metaphor for Japan's atomic devastation to a protector of that same country and a friend of children until ultimately returning to the role of a villain in the 1980s. Author Peter H. Brothers covers this amazing period involving everything from super-hero robots, smog monsters, and tag-team wrestling battles. Brothers covers the juvenile films made for kids where logic was not a concern to the creature's revival and return as a serious creature. Filled with fascinating photographs, personal insights from those who there, and the author's own expert analysis, "The Sons of Godzilla" is an amazing ride and unforgettable read for all fans of the series which has become the longest-running of its kind in film history.
