E-Book review:

Review


"Clancey's account of the Nobi earthquake is riveting and it should be read by everyone interested in Japanese history and the history of seismic activity in populated areas."
--History in Review


Clancey shows how the meaning of earthquakes extend far beyond death and destruction . . . because Clancey writes with verve and wit, Earthquake Nation will prove valuable to anyone seeking to understand Meiji Japan. --Journal of Asian Studies


Earthquake Nation is reminiscent of a dramatic performance with new actors entering the stage at each chapter to . . . enrich the multithreaded plot.  In the process, Clancey breathes new life into well-worn topics --Journal of Japanese Studies


In this groundbreaking work, Gregory Clancey argues that earthquakes are more than natural phenomena. --Technology and Culture


The real strength of the book lies in the author's ability to link cultural discourses with hard science . . . [and] the politics of the state, a rare combination at any time but especially so for a non-western setting
--NZ Journal of Asian Studies


"It is a significant contribution to the scholarship on Meiji Japan and on Japanese architectural, technological and scientific history."--East Asian Science, Technology, And Medicine


From the Inside Flap


"This is a work of extraordinary originality and lucidity. It reveals the surprising fact that earthquakes, in addition to being natural phenomena, have also been eminently social constructions. Clancey offers numerous insights on the origins of technical disciplines in Japan, and manages to do so in an expository style that is as engrossing as a detective novel."--Jordan Sand, author of House and Home in Modern Japan: Architecture, Domestic Space, and Bourgeois Culture, 1880-1930
