Pressed by a nagging recession, a declining—and aging—population, insecuritization of employment, and the threat of nuclear contamination, Japanese are struggling with social precarity.

It also examines how those most vulnerable to social isolation and everyday risk are coming up with new strategies for redesigning life with others.
