3.11: Disaster and Change in Japan
Japan Society Corporate Program

Tuesday, March 12,
2013
6:00p.m. - 8:00p.m.

Japan Society (333 East 47th Street New York, NY 10017)

Speaker:

Richard J. Samuels, Ford International Professor of Political Science; Director of the Center for International Studies, MIT

 

Presider:

Dr. George Packard, President, United States-Japan Foundation.

Synopsis: 
The most powerful earthquake in Japan's recorded history produced a devastating tsunami and caused an unprecedented meltdown at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant. This triple catastrophe claimed almost 20,000 lives, destroyed whole towns and ultimately will cost hundreds of billions of dollars. Drawing on his new book, 3.11: Disaster and Change in Japan, Richard J. Samuels, Ford International Professor of Political Science and Director of the Center for International Studies, MIT, offers the first broad assessment of the disaster's impact on Japan's government and society--and on the U.S. alliance. He shows how a rhetoric of crisis in national security, energy and local government now defines post-3/11 politics and public policy.

 

Followed by a book signing and reception.
