It focuses on the 1994 Northridge Earthquake in the US and other recent disasters to examine vulnerability and post-disaster recovery strategies.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"In addition to a comprehensive bibliography, the careful and thorough examination of the Northridge earthquake offers convincing evidence of the merits of a vunerability approach.."
-"Choice, April 1999 vol. 36, No. 8
"Guided by a number of vulnerability indices including ethnicity, gender, degree of literacy, age, life cycle, and so on, the authors present an array of numerical and narrative data to make the case that disasters expose social fault lines and fissures in the beliefs and rhetorics of equality and fairness."
--Steve Kroll-Smith "Contemporary Sociology
