Edited By: Howard Kunreuther and Adam Z Rose
In this two volume set the editors have brought together some of the most significant previously published papers by leading academics in this field. The volumes investigate the impact of natural disasters on national and regional economies. Volume 1 considers the effects both of the perception of risk and of direct losses and explores the costs of reducing the impact of disasters by forecasting, self-protection and the building of physical structures. Volume 2 deals with mitigating the costs of disaster through insurance, including financial coverage for catastrophic loss, and investigates the development of private-public partnerships for managing disasters and the problems of reconstruction and recovery.
