About the Author

Michael C. Brannigan is the George and Jane Pfaff Endowed Chair in Ethics and Moral Values at the College of Saint Rose.


This intensely moving account not only teaches us invaluable lessons regarding our societal ability to respond to disaster but, in providing extraordinary insights into the meaning of vulnerability and suffering, it also demonstrates the absolute necessity of cultivating interpersonal face-to-face connectedness and community in order to heal-a lesson that is particularly important in our individualistic, technology-saturated, digital culture. -- S. Kay Toombs, Baylor University
With this engaging book, Brannigan keeps a promise he made to his late Japanese mother-to learn more about the disasters of 3/11 and to share this with others. Brannigan effortlessly interweaves stories from the people he meets with his own rich knowledge of literature, legends, history, and philosophy to develop a philosophy of human's relation with nature. This book is not always optimistic, but always reveals Brannigan's warmth and genuine concern for the people he encounters. -- Brigitte Steger, University of Cambridge
In this pioneering work, Brannigan opens wide the doors on a previously understudied subject in the humanities and social sciences-disaster, trauma, and recovery. A rich and rewarding read for anyone interested in ethics and philosophy, this book is a must for all concerned with disaster preparedness and response, victimhood, grief management, mental health, medical ethics, and public policy, as well as Japanese and cultural studies. -- Robert Paul Churchill, Elton Professor of Philosophy, George Washington University
