About this book

Earthquakes have helped shape the history of many Latin American nations. The effects of floods, droughts, hurricanes, and earthquakes and tsunamis have destroyed people's lives and their built environments, and changed land forms, such as mountains, rivers, forests, and canyons. This collection of essays focuses on earthquakes in Latin America since the mid-nineteenth century.
