Abstract: For best book in ethnomusicology. Citation was as follows: Manabe’s book is a deeply informed study of music in relation to anti-nuclear protests in Japan since the devastating earthquake and nuclear disaster of 2011. The committee was in awe of the scope, depth, and risk-taking of the author’s research— at demonstrations and festivals, and with both indie and major label recordings musicians and producers; and in cyberspace. Her command of policy and its legal implications was as strong as her expert performance ethnography and music analysis. This study teaches us a great deal about the techniques of messaging, and the ways music breaks through the walls of official and unofficial censorship.
