Disasters are part of the modern condition, a source of physical anxiety and existential angst, and they are increasing in frequency, cost and severity. Drawing on both disaster research and social theory, this book offers a critical examination of their causes, consequences and future avoidance.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"A very interesting book that reviews a large amount of literature, both theoretical and conceptual, and re-presents this in an accessible manner. ... It will be of interest to those working in the field of disasters as it brings together rich description of the work of a number of key researchers into one text. ... To those sociologists who have not yet engaged with the issue of disaster, you could start nowhere better than with this text." (Sarah Bradshaw, American Journal of Sociology, Vol. 122 (4), January, 2017)
