33 More Reasons to be Proud / 日本人が世界に誇れる33のこと
Following the disaster of March 11, 2011, the world marveled at the civilized and peaceful response of the Japanese people. Since their approach is completely "normal" in Japan, it is very difficult for a Japanese person to explain the "why" of the thought process. In this book, Ruth offers her explanation based on personal experience and a deep respect for both the Japanese and the non-Japanese style. Composed in Japanese specifically for a Japanese audience, Ruth hopes this book will encourage readers to have great confidence in their extremely valid point of view. For Japanese people in general, Globalization can feel overwhelming and engenders an impression almost everything must change to meet some unclear "global standard". Here, Ruth presents 33 areas of Japanese lifestyle and thought process that bolster and add to the global mix as is. Japan's subtle contribution to the ever-evolving global masterpiece can and will be profound.
