Ghosts Of The Tsunami
Author: Richard Lloyd Parry

More details 

On 11 March 2011, a massive earthquake sent a 120-foot-high tsunami smashing into the coast of north-east Japan. By the time the sea retreated, more than 18,500 people had been crushed, burned to death, or drowned. It was Japan’s greatest single loss of life since the atomic bombing of Nagasaki. It set off a national crisis, and the meltdown of a nuclear power plant. And even after the immediate emergency had abated, the trauma of the disaster continued to express itself in bizarre and mysterious ways.

Author: Robert Winder

More details

Then came the seams of iron and coal that made it an industrial giant.

Author: Alex Preston , Neil Gower

More details
