Environmental hazards

Environmental hazards

306 pages, parution le 07/06/2004 (4eme édition)


The fourth edition of Environmental Hazards continues to blend physical and social science to provide a balanced, contemporary introduction to all the major natural events, technological accidents and aspects of global environmental change that threaten humans and what they value. Part I gives a broad account of hazard identification and the common disaster-reducing strategies that are available within both industrialised and developing nations. Part II examines individual environmental threats and assesses the extent to which existing losses to life and property can be prevented.

This completely revised edition contains increased coverage of biophysical and technological hazards plus an entirely new chapter on context hazards. New material has been added on human vulnerability, disaster theory, disease epidemics and rare hazards with the potential for global catastrophe. The larger format of the book allows an improved presentation of a greater number of figures and photographs. Boxed sections have been introduced to summarise key concepts and case studies. Each chapter concludes with suggestions for further reading and a gazetteer of useful websites is provided.

Environmental Hazards remains a lucid, well-organised and comprehensive account of risk and disaster in the modern world. It is essential reading for students of geography, environmental science and the earth sciences.
