Description
There is no place on Earth that is disaster-proof. We can build special structures, but we cannot control the nature and power of a disaster. This must-have book takes readers around the world to learn about disasters from international points of view. Readers will evaluate the causes of disasters, and the relationships between disasters and social issues, politics, and preparedness. Readers will learn about responses to aftermaths as well. Viewpoints are shared from such cultures and places as Africa, China, England, Haiti, Brazil, Japan, and Rwanda.
