08-Mar-12 - AAS 2012 Book Highlight: Japan's Shrinking Regions in the 21st Century - Discusses the 2011 earthquake, tsunami, and nuclear meltdown

Although a year has passed since the March 2011 earthquake, tsunami, and nuclear meltdown in Japan, the effects are still resonating loud and clear. Debris is circulating across the Pacific Ocean, and Japan is still working on restoring normalcy.

This is why

Cambria Press is highlighting Japan's Shrinking Regions in the 21st Century: Contemporary Responses to Depopulation and Socioeconomic Decline, which offers policy makers and practitioners up-to-date advice for community revival born of extensive collaborative fieldwork across the whole Japanese archipelago. It includes a helpful, timely epilogue on the Tohoku earthquake, tsunami and nuclear meltdown of March 2011.

The book was published by Cambria Press in August 2011.

Watch this interview with one of the coeditors, Dr. Peter Matanle, about this important study.
