This book is a series of essays looking at disasters and their immediate and long-term effects on the survivors.

It has a rich tapestry of insights, knowledge, and experience which provides a rich learning experience for the reader. It is one of those books that you, at first sight, would consider as a dip-in text, but as you start to read you are compelled to seek the next new insight or concept. The text is peppered with case studies that bring the ideas and concepts alive on the pages.

One worth getting at such a low price.
