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)
