Handbook of Disaster Research, Hardback Book


This timely Handbook is based on the principle that disasters are social constructions and focuses on social science disaster research.

It provides an interdisciplinary approach to disasters with theoretical, methodological, and practical applications.

Attention is given to conceptual issues dealing with the concept "disaster" and to methodological issues relating to research on disasters.

These include Geographic Information Systems as a useful research tool and its implications for future research.

This seminal work is the first interdisciplinary collection of disaster research as it stands now while outlining how the field will continue to grow.
