Editorial Reviews

Review

"Overall, I would recommend this encyclopedia to broad audience for several reasons. Although there are a number of high quality handbooks available on the topic of disaster management, ... this resource is a rare example of a comprehensive encyclopedia on disasters and disaster relief combining a global and historical perspective on the subject area. The scope of the work and the simple but effective navigation to information will attract a wide range of interested users from students and teachers to community organizers and the general public. Sage’s Encyclopedia of Disaster Relief fills a current gap in the modern reference collection." (Carol Perry Social Sciences 2011-10-14)

CCPR is a university-wide research center dedicated to improving preparedness and response capabilities to catastrophic events including terrorism, natural disasters, and public health emergencies. Drawing on the resources of NYU’s 14 schools, CCPR conducts research that addresses issues ranging from first-responder capacity during crises, to public health response, to legal issues relating to security, to private-sector crisis management and business continuity. Additionally, Penuel serves as the Assistant Vice President for Health Initiatives at NYU.

Prior to joining NYU, Penuel worked for the firm Chemonics International, serving on projects for the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) and the World Bank.

Format: Hardcover
Penuel & Statler have assembled the definitive Encyclopedia of Disaster Relief. The book addresses a large range of topics essential for anyone who contributes to disaster relief. The articles provide in-depth information and insightful synthesis about all aspects of disaster relief. These two volumes are sure to emerge as key reference works for research on how disasters impact this planet.

The Encyclopedia of Disaster Relief will attract readers from multiple disciplines and it will greatly enrich any collection of books. Employees of the state, libraries of all types, NGOs, university students and professors and disaster relief volunteers will find a decisive collection of articles. Outstanding work!
