Media reviews
'This volume gives the reader an informative and interesting look at some terrifying and destructive weather phenomena. The history and chronology of the great storms form the major part of the book, but the human, and often tragic, side of the story is not neglected .... Intended for the general reader, it provides an excellent overview of natural disasters.' Booklist 'The author's main goal was to create an encyclopedia that focuses on scientific, historical, and cultural concepts of cyclones in tropical regions around the world: the resulting work is wonderful ... Recommended for libraries that support study of meteorology and climatology.' CHOICE 'This source contains over 200 articles describing the science, history, and culture of cyclonic storms ... Recommended for public and academic libraries.' Library Journal
