About this book

Using a case-based approach, Disaster Management Handbook is a comprehensive reference that shares firsthand accounts and theoretical analyses of disasters and the interrelated issues of disaster preparedness, response, recovery, and mitigation. It provides in-depth examinations of both man-made disasters - such as airplane crashes, computer network hacking, and terrorism - as well as earthquakes, floods, tsunamis and other natural or environmental disasters. This book provides the necessary understanding of concepts and offers helpful insights to assist practitioners in crafting constructive public policy that contributes to the prevention of such catastrophic events.
