This book covers several dimensions of disaster studies as an emerging discipline. It is the inaugural book in the series 'Disaster Studies and Management' and deals with questions such as "Is disaster management a field of practice, a profession, or simply a new area of study?" Exploring intersectionalities, the book also examines areas of research that could help enhance the discourse on disaster management from policy and practice perspectives, revisiting conventional event-centric approaches, which are the basis for most writings on the subject. Several case studies and comparative analyses reflect a critical reading of research and practice concerning disasters and their management.

The book offers valuable insights into various subjects including the challenge of establishing inter- and multi-disciplinary teams within the academia involved in disaster studies, and sociological and anthropological readings of post-disaster memoryscapes. Each of the contributors has an enduring interest in disaster studies, thus enriching the book immensely. This book will be of interest to all the students and scholars of disaster studies and disaster management, as well as to practitioners and policymakers.

...[The editor] has had hands on experience of working with communities and with governments. She is India's foremost scholar of disaster studies... This publication brings together a diversity of perspectives and exemplifies the widening canvas of this new and emergent discipline... a valuable resource to the growing number of professionals working in the field of disaster/ emergency management- governments, academics, humanitarian agencies and civil society organisations.

- Professor S. Parasuraman, Ex- Director, Tata Institute of Social Sciences (TISS), India.

This important collection of essays reinforces the need for rigorous research and careful policy analysis. The two are skillfully intertwined in essays that capture the imperative for better analysis and honest appraisal of strategic interventions. Much of the material is from primary investigations and novel approaches, and no reader will not be influenced by the depth of understanding that the authors bring to this crucial subject of world-wide importance.

- Professor Edmund Penning-Rowsell, OBE, Pro Vice-Chancellor, Middlesex University, London.
