Encyclopedia of disasters: environmental catastrophes and human tragedies

Book Cover
Average Rating
Greenwood Press,
Pub. Date:
While it seems unfortunate that an encyclopedia of global disasters should take two large volumes, the entries here are detailed and informative and provide the exact causes of each event, whether it is an environmental catastrophe or a human tragedy. Gunn (U. of British Columbia) enhances the detailed entries with useful appendices, such as seismic measurements of earthquakes, and the cost of each disaster in human lives.
