Synopsis

Disaster Relief by Alan Marzilli

Hurricane Katrina brought to light many questions about Americans' preparedness for handling large-scale disasters: Is FEMA effective? Are the local, state, and federal governments sufficiently coordinated? What is the role of the National Guard and the Army Corps of Engineers in responding to disasters? Is federal flood insurance capable of cutting costs? Examining these issues from different perspectives, Disaster Relief offers students the tools to form their own opinions by bringing recent events into balanced focus.

Reviews

Unlike similar titles in a number of other series, these books were written by individual authors and offer clear, well-supported theories that make use of many examples...these volumes have a definite place in libraries where material on these topics is needed for more adept readers and researchers.
