About this book

This volume traces the development of New Orleans from precolonial times to post-Katrina realities, in the context of the deltaic plain on which it lies. The book describes the underlying physical terrain and covers the various transformations humans have made to it including site selection, settlement, urbanization, population, expansion, drainage, protection, exploitation, devastation and recovery. What New Orleans has experienced foretells what similar cities will be tackling in years to come.
