Here is a comprehensive overview of the geophysical, technological, and social aspects of natural disasters. This book systematically reviews the agents of natural catastrophes - earthquakes, volcanoes, floods, drought, hurricanes, erosion, fires, etc. - in terms of their geophysical processes and effects. The human impact and response is examined from various perspectives, including damage 1/5(1). The best books on Natural Disasters recommended by Khurshid Alam. Disaster reconstruction and climate change expert, Khurshid Alam, talks through five illuminating books on natural disasters and outlines some of the key political issues relating to disaster management. Some basic themes in sociological studies of disasters / E.L. Quarantelli --Community response to disaster: functional and structural alterations / Dennis E. Wenger --Interorganizational relations in communities under stress / Russell R. Dynes --The organization of disaster response: some fundamental theoretical issues / Gary A. Kreps --The. use the terms “disaster” and “hazard” interchangeably. Starting with definitions that are event based, many have proposed differentiations that reflect key analytical features of disasters. Kreps and Drabek () proposed that some comparative analyses could be enhanced if disasters were viewed as a special type of social problem.
