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.
