History of Earthquakes in Japan

Friday, March 11, 2011

Earthquakes and tsunamis are woven into the psyche of Japan. Kerry Smith, professor of history at Brown and author of "A Time of Crisis: Japan, the Great Depression, and Rural Revitalization," talks about the immediacy of watching disaster unfold and the effect that may have on contemporary Japanese society. He also remembers how the natural history of the country has become embedded in the social and political history of the country.
