Not long before the writing of this book, the 2011 Tōhoku disaster struck Japan. Its occurrence helped make the paradigm of contemporary risk and disaster in the anthropocene era globally visible and has synthesized most of the attributes of risk society and global environmental change. At the same time, this event, also known as the Great East Japan disaster, showed how natural processes—earthquake and tsunami—interact, and provided clear evidence of the increasingly complex interference between technology and natural processes resulting in nuclear disaster in this instance. The disaster also exhibited how its effects and loss extend globally, well beyond the local area, with the release of radiation through air and seawater, the dispersion of disaster debris throughout the North Pacific Ocean and by the simultaneous impact on the national economy and global production.
