Summary: The book explores the seismic and volcanic hazards that will affect the lives of countless people. Agents of Chaos is not alarmist, but attempts to answer readers' questions about where, when, and why large earthquakes and volcanic outbursts occur. It pinpoints potential dangers and shows what is likely to happen when the next great earthquake strikes.

From the back cover: "Discover the Earth in geologic terms, to recognize that long periods of quiet s
tability are interrupted by sudden and violent change--gigantic earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, meteorite impacts, and other cataclysmic events--affecting millions of lives. These shocks to human complacency, whether they strike California, Missouri, New York, or South Carolina, remind us that our planet, subject to chaotic forces, pulsates like a living organism."
