Description - Japan in Crisis by Bong Youngshik

This volume, stemming from the Asan Institute for Policy Studies, observes that for Japan to 'rise again' would mean recovery not only from the triple disaster-the March, 2011 earthquake, tsunami, and nuclear meltdown-but from 20-plus years of economic stagnation, political fumbling, and deterioration in Japan's regional and global influence.
