FINANCIAL TIMES BOOKS OF THE YEAR 2014

'An affectionate, beautifully written and counter-intuitively optimistic take on the country, which stresses Japan's ability to reinvent itself' (Gideon Rachman, Financial Times)

Despite years of stagnation, Japan remains one of the world's largest economies and a country which exerts a remarkable cultural fascination. David Pilling's new book is an entertaining, deeply knowledgeable and surprising analysis of a group of islands which have shown great resilience, both in the face of financial distress and when confronted with the overwhelming disaster of the 2011 earthquake and resulting tsunami.

Bending Adversity is a superb work of reportage and the essential book even for those who already feel they know the country well.
