9789004268296: When the Tsunami Came to Shore: Culture and Disaster in Japan

Edited by Roy Starrs, this collection of essays by an international group of leading experts on Japanese religion, anthropology, history, literature and music presents new research and thinking on the long and complex relationship between culture and disaster in Japan, one of the most disaster-prone countries in the world. Focusing first on responses to the triple disasters of March 2011, the book then puts the topic in a wider historical context by looking at responses to earlier disasters, both natural and man-made, including the great quakes of 1995 and 1923 and the atomic bombings of 1945. This wide-ranging double structure enables an in-depth understanding of the complexities of the issues involved that goes well beyond the cliches and the headlines."

About the Author:

Roy Starrs, Ph.D. (1986), University of British Columbia, teaches at University of Otago, New Zealand. His recent publications include Modernism and Japanese Culture (Palgrave, 2011) and, as editor, Politics and Religion in Modern Japan (Palgrave, 2011) and Rethinking Japanese Modernism (Brill, 2012).

Review:

Editor Starrs has put together a comprehensive look at the Japanese cultural response to the March 2011 earthquake, tsunami, and Fukushima nuclear disasters. The book includes contributions from a diverse array of international scholars of Japanese religion, anthropology, intellectual history, literature, and popular music. The chapters cover a variety of themes, including the idea in many religions that disaster is heaven s punishment, or tembatsu; responses to past disasters, including major earthquakes and the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki; and the importance of the use of Twitter by some of the most important post-3/11 poets. --E. L. Hirsch, Providence College Summing Up: Recommended. Best for advanced students of intellectual and cultural history.
