Editorial Reviews

Review

"Drawing heavily on recent case studies, this book examines emergency management as practiced in the United States at the federal level and by state and local agencies. The most recent disasters are covered, and up-to-date information on the role of emergency management agencies under the Obama administration is provided."--Foreign Service Journal, October 2011 "Contained within this monograph are details and descriptions of contemporary emergency management practices and strategies, as well as descriptions of the key players involved in emergency management both within the United States and around the world. The authors' intent is to provide the reader with a working knowledge of how the functions of comprehensive emergency management operate and the influence they can have on everyday life. New to the fourth edition are an expanded coverage of risk management and disaster communications, more material on mitigation of disasters, and current information on the role of FEMA in the Obama administration."--MCEER.com "In this beginner's guide to emergency management, Haddock, Bullock, and Coppola provide a well-rounded approach that fulfills the requirements of an introductory textbook. Their comments and assessments of the progress of emergency management lead the reader from early historical events-such as an 1803 New Hampshire fire-to some post-Katrina changes that affected national and local planning. The book reviews some of the history of the Federal Emergency Management Agency and its current organizational structure. This well referenced book is formatted to stimulate the reader to seek more information on this valuable subject and is a good starting point. The authors appear to be knowledgeable and experienced and have put together a well organized book."--Security Management

The book got to me about a week faster than originally forecasted and the book is very easy to read.
rightmind
The main problem I have with it is the book focuses to much on Katrina it feels like you keep rereading the the same stuff over and over.
DanB
Whether taking a class in emergency management or preparing for the next disaster this book is a great read.

Format: Hardcover
Damon Cappola's Fourth Edition of his popular book on international crisis management includes case studies and useful updates on matters which college professors will find useful in transmitting the core elements of crisis management and the issued embedded therein for their students. Using a fairly comprehensive approach to a wide and complex array of subjects Capolla's book reflects the obvious and subtle dimensions of an inherently interdisciplinary and diplomatic jumble of coordination, planning, logistics, terrain and demographic assessment which iften characterize humanitarian interventions and the related set of problems in assessing any international crisis. While every such crisis has its political aspects, the book focuses on the context of international response, the UN role, the enormous challenges of establishing a coherent and effective command and control scheme and the actual execution of assistance in a failed or failing state. For students wishing to know more about the spectrum of issues involved this is a great introduction.

This book is very well organized and takes the student, step-by-step, through the emergency planning process. It uses real disasters such as 9/11, Hurricane Katrina, and the Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill to illustrate pro’s and con’s of past planning processes. It’s a keeper.
