520    "This book explores the politics of anti-nuclear activism 
       in Tokyo after the Fukushima nuclear disaster of March 
       2011. Analysing the protests in the context of a longer 
       history of citizen activism in Tokyo, it also situates the
       movement within the framework of a global struggle for 
       democracy, from the Arab Spring to Occupy Wall Street. By 
       examining the anti-nuclear movement at both urban and 
       transnational scales, the book also reveals the complex 
       geography of today's globally connected social movements. 
       It emphasises the contestation of urban space by anti-
       nuclear activists in Tokyo and the weaving together of 
       urban and cyber space in their praxis. By focusing on the 
       cultural life of the movement--from its characteristic 
       demonstration style to its blogs, zines and pamphlets--
       this book communicates activists' voices in their own 
       words. Based on excellent ethnographic research, it 
       concludes that the anti-nuclear protests in Tokyo after 
       the Fukushima disaster have redefined social movement 
       politics for a new era. Providing an analysis of a unique 
       period in Japan's contemporary urban history from the 
       perspective of eyewitness observations, this book will be 
       useful to students and scholars of Japanese Politics, 
       Sociology and Japanese Studies in general"--|cProvided by
