505 ## - FORMATTED CONTENTS NOTE
Formatted contents note The much expanded sixth edition of this book provides a fully up-to-date overview of all the extreme events that threaten people and what they value in the twenty-first century. It integrates cutting-edge material from the physical and social sciences to illustrate how natural and human systems interact to place communities of all sizes, and at all stages of economic development, at risk. It also explains in detail the various measures available to reduce the ongoing losses to life and property.
Part I of this established textbook defines basic concepts of hazard, risk, vulnerability and disaster. Attention is given to the evolution of theory, to the scales and patterns of disaster impact and to the optimum management strategies needed to minimize the future impact of damaging events.
Part II employs a consistent chapter structure to demonstrate how individual hazards, such as earthquakes, severe storms, floods and droughts, plus biophysical and technological processes, create distinctive impacts and challenges throughout the world. The ways in which different societies can make positive responses to these threats are placed firmly in the context of sustainable development and global environmental change.
This extensively revised edition includes: - A new concluding chapter that summarizes the globalization of hazard and critically examines the latest perspectives on climate-related disasters. - Fresh views on the reliability of disaster data, disaster risk reduction, severe storms, droughts and technological hazards. - An annotated list of key resources, including further reading and relevant websites.
