Most Helpful Customer Reviews

5 of 6 people found the following review helpful By William R. Hull on May 13, 2008
Format: Paperback
This book was good overall. I would recommend this as reading only for those studying policy with regard to disasters. This reading was on my syllabus for my policy process class.

The good parts of this book are conveniently organizing natural and man-made disasters (earthquakes, hurricanes, oil spills and nuclear power accidents) into sections and framing his discussion around a group of policy makers and policy communities.

Where this book wasn't so good was his use of repetition. He could have condensed this book down to 50 pages or so and still got the point across. He repeats what he says too often in order to either increase the page count or to get his point across.
