Book Description
Japan is still coming to terms with the 'triple
disaster' of 2011 – earthquake, tsunami, and nuclear
meltdown. Only two decades ago, the country was
similarly shaken by the 'double disaster' of earthquake
and sarin gas attack in 1995. What can we learn about
Japan through the diverse responses to these two
critical moments in postwar history when a 'normal'
sense of stability and existing social order was
severely undermined? This edited collection brings
together a multidisciplinary team of scholars to engage
this question and explore the wide-ranging and diverse
responses by national and local governments, political
leaders, citizen activists, concerned mothers,
religious organizations, literary figures, and public
intellectuals.
