Japan: Testing the Stamina

Issue & Policy Briefs March 25, 2011, No. 63

The series of disasters that have hit Japan are testing the stamina and resilience of the Japanese people. Having experienced disasters in the past, they have demonstrated an impressive stamina and ability to withstand the horrifying destruction caused by the earthquake and tsunami. The problems that have occurred with the collapse of the Fukushima nuclear plant make the Japanese face a disaster that might over-shadow most others menaces to human security ever experienced by the hardened Japanese.
