His pirate adventure One Piece, which debuted in Weekly Shonen Jump magazine in 1997, quickly became one of the most popular manga in Japan."CAROLE HABER is Professor of History at the University of North Carolina in Charlotte and the author of Beyond Sixty-Five: The Dilemma of Old Age in America's Past.
