This book provides a comprehensive examination of the effects of a natural disaster on businesses and organisations, and on a range of stakeholders, including employees and consumers. Research on how communities and businesses respond to disasters can inform policy and mitigate the cost and impacts of future disasters. This book discusses how places recover following a disaster and the vital roles that business and other organisations play.

This volume gives a detailed understanding of business, organisational and consumer responses to the Christchurch earthquake sequence of 2010-2011, which caused 185 deaths, the loss of over 70 per cent of buildings in the city's CBD, major infrastructure damage, and severely affected the city's image. Despite the devastation, the businesses, organisations and people of Christchurch are now undergoing significant recovery.

The book sheds significant new light not only on business and organisation response to disaster but on how business and urban systems may be made more resilient.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Many people remember where they were when they heard about the first Christchurch Earthquake; it was just so significant. This volume edited by Michael Hall and colleagues is remarkable for its breadth and depth of coverage of business recovery in a single locality. Seldom are the effects of natural disasters examined so systematically and from such a wide range of perspectives. Business so very rarely proceeds `as usual' after events like this. Individually, each chapter offers thought-provoking insights into diverse pathways to regeneration; collectively, they force us to reconsider precisely what we understand by `redevelopment' for a city the size, scale and context of Christchurch." - Tim Coles, Professor, Business School, University of Exeter, United Kingdom
