Summary: This is the first volume to comprehensively take stock of what we know about the geophysical and human aspects of natural hazards, with an eye to developing an approach for managing these events. Unlike traditional texts on the topic, which utilize a hazard-by-hazard approach, the book emphasizes the physical characteristics that hazards share, such as magnitude, duration, and frequency.

Chapters integrate perspectives from the physical and social sciences moreto identify and describe general principles that can enhance our understanding of the physical, social, technical, and economic forces inherent to extreme geophysical events. Examining the human dimension of natural hazards, the authors consider individual and community perceptions of these events and explore the effects of different attitudes on behavior and response.

The work also addresses the larger picture of hazards policy, shedding light on political and economic factors and providing richly detailed examples of planning-based responses to hazards management. less
