Based on extensive ethnographic and historical research conducted in diverse field locations, this volume offers an acute analysis of how actors at local, national, and international levels govern disasters; it examines the political issues at stake that often go unaddressed and demonstrates that victims of disaster do not remain passive.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"The book is a huge contribution to disaster anthropology and sociology, public policies, international relations and risk communication because it widens the range of approaches connected to the theme. It introduces rich and complex analyses stemming from case studies, which allow us to compare how prevention devices, participation and reconstruction are used in multiple ways by actors facing disaster." (Marta de Araujo Pinheiro, Contexto Internacional, Vol. 39 (1), January-April, 2017)
