Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

"With so many people crowding into the nation's most hazardous earthquake, hurricane, and wildfire zones, future disasters are going to take a fearful economic as well as human toll. Mary Comerio's illuminating and sobering book shows what's in store—and how unprepared we are."—Marc Reisner, author of Cadillac Desert

"Comerio provides an exceptional analysis of disaster recovery that highlights the impacts of urban disasters on housing and addresses the policy challenges they pose. The lucid writing style makes this a highly accessible work."—Peter J. May, coauthor of Environmental Management and Governance

"As an exposé of the acute problems involved in reconstruction after large disasters, this book provides a rationale for effective housing and economic measures. It is not only a commentary on present response deficiencies, but also provides a basic framework for significant improvement."—Bruce Bolt, author of Earthquakes
