Description

The current models habitually used to interpret disasters are now decades old and relate to a time when society held markedly different views. The author of this provocative new book, a physical geographer and survivor of a major earthquake in southern Italy (1980), reconceptualizes the story of disaster in terms of present-day trends and tendencies.show more
