Burton, Ian, Kates, Robert W., White, Gilbert F.

SUMMARY

The disastrous effects of natural hazards such as earthquakes, floods, and hurricanes are often called Acts of God.' Challenging that view, the long-awaited second edition of this now classic work depicts natural hazards as extreme events in nature that are made even more dangerous by the acts or the neglect of people. Since the beginning of the 20th century, the toll on society resulting from such environmental episodes has changed significantly in several ways\m-\while fatalities from major events have decreased, the number of reported events causing 100 or more deaths, as well as the extent of property damage, has risen steadily. Providing a framework for examining what accounts for these overall trends, THE ENVIRONMENT AS HAZARD offers an understanding of how people around the world deal with fluctuations in the local natural systems of air, water, and terrain.Burton, Ian is the author of 'Environment as Hazard - Ian Burton - Paperback' with ISBN 9780195022223 and ISBN 019502222X.
