Although few serious historians believe that President Roosevelt enticed the Japanese to attack at Pearl Harbor, the hoary accusation still retains some pop ularity among laypersons. In this se quel to At Dawn We Slept ( LJ 11/1/81), Prange's successors address them selves to the question of blame for the attack and fire a heavy broadside against the historical revisionists and their high-level plots. Its relentless log ic and exhaustive detail will satisfy scholars and others intrigued by the controversy. Casual readers will find that this historiographical drama lacks the narrative structure and gripping prose style of Prange's earlier works.
