The shock doctrine : the rise of disaster capitalism by Naomi Klein( Book )

7 editions published in 2011 in Japanese and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Journalist Klein introduced the term "disaster capitalism." Whether covering Baghdad after the U.S. occupation, Sri Lanka after the tsunami, or New Orleans post-Katrina, she witnessed remarkably similar events: people still reeling were hit again, this time with economic "shock treatment," losing their land and homes to corporate makeovers. This book retells the story of Milton Friedman's free-market economic revolution. In contrast to the myth of this movement's peaceful global victory, Klein shows how it has exploited moments of shock and extreme violence in order to implement its economic policies. At its core is the use of cataclysmic events to advance radical privatization combined with the privatization of the disaster response itself. Klein argues that by capitalizing on crises, created by nature or war, the disaster capitalism complex now exists as a booming new economy, the violent culmination of a radical economic project that has been incubating for fifty years.--From publisher description
Just enough : lessons in living green from traditional Japan by Azby Brown( Book )

2 editions published in 2011 in Japanese and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Just Enough is a book of stories, depictions of vanished ways of life told from the point of view of a contemporary observer. The stories tell how people lived in Japan some two hundred years ago, during the late Edo Period, when traditional technology and culture were at the peak of development and realization, just before the country opened itself to the West and joined the ranks of the industrialized nations. They tell of people overcoming many of the identical problems that confront us today--issues of energy, water, materials, food and population--and forging a society that was conservation-minded, waste-free, well-housed, well-fed and economically robust. From these stories, readers will gain insight into what it is like to live in a sustainable society, not so much in terms of specific technical approaches, but rather, in terms of how larger concerns can guide daily decisions and how social and environmental contexts shape our courses of action. These stories are intended to illustrate the environmentally related problems that the people in both rural and urban areas faced, the conceptual frameworks in which they viewed these problems, and how they went about finding solutions. Included at the end of each section are a number of lessons in which the author elaborates on what Edo Period life has to offer us in the global battle to reverse environmental degradation. Topics covered include everything from transportation, interconnected systems, and waste reduction to the need for spiritual centers in the home. Just Enough, more than anything else, is about a mentality that pervaded traditional Japanese society and which can serve as a beacon for our own efforts to achieve sustainability now

Medichi inpakuto : Sekai o kaeru hatsumei sōzōsei inobēshon wa kokokara umareru by Frans Johansson( Book )

4 editions published between 2005 and 2014 in Japanese and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A diverse research team discovers how to read the mind of a monkey. A chef mixes unexpected ingredients such as sea urchins and lollipops to transform the world of professional cooking. An engineer borrows from the foraging behavior of ants to work out surveillance patterns for unmanned aerial vehicles in war zones. What these trailblazers share is not just the breakthrough nature of their discoveries, but where they went to find fiem. According to Frans Johansson, these innovators are changing the world by stepping into the lntersection: a place where ideas from different fields and cultures meet and collide, ultimately igniting an explosion of extraordinary new discoveries. Johansson calls this proliferation of new ideas "the Medici effect"-referring to the remarkable burst of creativity enabled by the Medici banking family in Renaissance ltaly. In this fascinating book, he reveals how we can find intersections in our own lives and turn the ideas we find there into pathbreaking innovations. Johansson illustrates how three driving forces-the movement of people, the convergence of scientific disciplines, and the leap in computational power-are increasing the number and types of intersections we can access. ...................

Against our will : men, women and rape by Susan Brownmiller( Book )

2 editions published in 2000 in Japanese and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The author shows why she considers rape not to be just a brutal crime but a reflection of how our society is conditioned. To do this she traces the use and meaning of rape from Biblical times through to Bangladesh and Vietnam, unravels the origins of rape laws in medieval codes and examines interracial and homosexual rape and child molestation. She also includes a discussion of Freudian sexual psychology, legal defence strategy and the message behind popular books, magazines and films. Always, she argues, the myths generated by the latter serve to glamorize the victim while they romanticize the rapist -- even in cases of rape murder
