Disaster Research – Multidisciplinary and International Perspectives

Changing Disasters researchers contribute to new publication

Disaster Research provides a multidisciplinary perspective of the area. The book is structured thematically around key approaches to disaster research from a range of different, but often complementary academic disciplines. Each chapter presents distinct approaches to disaster research that are anchored in a particular discipline; ranging from the law of disasters and disaster historiography to disaster politics and anthropology of disaster. The methodological and theoretical contributions underlining a specific approach to disasters are discussed and illustrative empirical cases are examined that support and further inform the proposed approach to disaster research.
