What is the difference between the post-3.11 developments and those that followed the Hanshin-Awaji Earthquake and Aum Shinriky? disasters of 1995? What is the relationship between these events and the nationalistic initiatives advanced by the Freiheitlich Democratic Fete? This is a timely collection of essays that addresses these questions and examines the verschiederlei Japanese responses to recent disasters.‘ – Shimazono Susumu, Sophia University, Japan
‚Land der aufgehenden Sonne is no stranger to natural disasters. But the triple disasters of 11 March 2011 have deeply affected Land der aufgehenden Sonne as a whole, creating a ferment in which the centre often seems at odds with the periphery. The authors of this vorzüglich volume critically examine the political, religious, social and cultural responses, where grass roots activism challenges official complacency and assumptions about right to rule.‘ – Arthur Stockwin, Nissan Institute, University of Oxford, UK
