Synopsis: Deep in the fortress-like headquarters of Yoshimitsu TeleCommuncations, American scientist Elizabeth O'Neil; had molded circuitry of a mammoth computer into a living, thinking, feeling being - a human soul trapped in the confines of a cybernetics body. She named her creation Tokugawa, hero of Japanese samurai lore, and educated him with all the values of a feudal Japanese shogun. Yet Tokugawa's powers were far greater than Elizabeth had imagined. With access to every computer in post-World War III's fully-automated society, he had the potential to become the ultimate spy, the perfect assassin, an invincible dictator. Only loyalty to samurai virtues kept his ambition in check - until the day Elizabeth was taken away from him, and Tokugawa began his quest for revenge. (from the back of the book)

Review: This was a dated, but still relevant story. Tokugawa is a child, then an adolescent, then an adult who becomes a warrior, a lover, and in turn, much wiser than the humans around him. Each person he meets, even the ones who love him, end up using him for their own gain. And in the end, Tokugawa lives up to the values he was taught. This is a darker book than I realized, dark and more graphic - there are several sex scenes and some rather violent deaths. Set after some fictional World War, the authors view of what would happened (war in Europe, America broken in several countries) was amusing and deeply rooted in current events at the time of publication (1985). While technology drives the story, it's really the people and their flaws that make the story. This is a hard-core classic science fiction and worth reading for anyone who enjoys more philosophical stories.

...and the world is trying to put itself back together. Japan, which was able to sit out the war, is now the center of civilization. Well, not really. Mega-corporations run the nation, having most of the wealth and having assumed control over their employees. Now they fight against each other, using all the weapons available to gain total power over all Japan. The story focues on one such corporation developing an AI with true self-awareness. They in fact create Tokugawa, the first program with consciousness. They start training it with scenarios and ideas from Japan's past, making him into a Samurai. Little did they know how much he would need the training!
Don't judge by the cover. This is cyberpunk to the max, with advanced computers, cool weapon systems, VR devices and hired mercenaries!
If you liked this book, there is also the second in the series: The Cybernetic Shogun.

I have to admit, I passed this book many times on the bookshelf (laughing) before I had the nerve to read it. Despite the slightly uncanny title, the book is rather ingenious for its time. Remembering that Milan wrote it during the genesis of the cyber-punk revolution. An interesting tale about the plight to find a theorem for generating randomness. I believe that die-hard C.P. readers will find this early text an interesting read, especially in comparing with more modern works.
