Synopsis

Great Historic Disasters Set by Chelsea House Publishers

History has been plagued by a number of monumental disasters that forever changed societies, industries, and the environment. Great Historic Disasters tells the compelling stories of important historical disasters and explains their impact and the reforms they spurred. From the sinking of the Titanic to the devastating influenza outbreaks in 1918-1919 to the more recent calamities of Hurricane Katrina and the Indian Ocean tsunami, these events in history left a legacy in their widespread devastation and in the reform they sparked in their wake. These lively narratives are highly illustrated with full-color and black-and-white photographs, drawing readers into the accounts of these historical events. Beginning with the historical context of the event to depict life in that time and place, each book's story builds to a vivid description of the disaster, discusses the aftermath, and then analyzes the way the disaster changed history and impacted the future.
