Free (Kindle) Reconstructing 3/11: Earthquake, Tsunami... [Japan Recent Events]
Reconstructing 3/11: Earthquake, tsunami and nuclear meltdown - how Japan's future depends on its understanding of the 2011 triple disaster by multiple contributors is an analytical follow-up to last year's events in Japan, free courtesy of Abiko Free Press, set up by the same people who last year gave us the charity survivors' experiences anthology which is still free in multiple stores.
Currently free @ Amazon (available to Canadians and in the UK). Doesn't exist yet in the Sony store, but I expect they'll probably eventually get this in at some point once it stops being a KDP/Prime item.
(ETA: The blog of "Our Man in Abiko", who edited this and the charity anthology, indicates this is a 1-day freebie.)
One year after Japan was devastated by the earthquake, tsunami and nuclear meltdown in March, 2011, and all the problems this triple disaster caused are still not fixed. And the hard questions raised by the responses to the 3/11 crisis of both the Japanese government and the media still remain mostly, and unfortunately, unanswered.
“Reconstructing 3/11”, the first eBook from electronic publisher Abiko Free Press, draws on the experiences and expertise of noted journalists, independent writers, and Japan experts to take a close and insightful look at various facets of the 3/11 Disaster. From an assessment of what the Kan administration did right, to a first-hand account of what it took to volunteer for clean-up after the disaster, to an analysis of how Japan’s yakuza gangsters actually proved a force for good during the early stages of disaster recovery, “Reconstructing 3/11” reports on angles and attitudes about that fateful day which you likely didn’t get from your conventional media outlets.
Contributors to “Reconstructing 3/11” include Tokyo Vice author Jake Adelstein, M.I.T. Center for International Studies researcher Michael Cucek, Japan Times journalist Philip Brasor, and Kiyoshi Kurokawa, chairman and co-founder of Impact Japan, a think tank dedicated to fostering recovery in the Tohoku region through entrepreneurship and technology.
