"A timely publication. . . . Highly recommended for disaster scholars and emergency management professional alike." --International Journal of Disaster Resilience in the Built Environment "A definitive and wide-ranging work by internationally renowned scholars. 'Disaster resilience' is for many a mantra regularly extolled but seldom understood. The contributors provide a systematic, sophisticated, thought-provoking, and illuminating discourse on what disaster resilience fundamentally means. This is a terrific combination of theory-advancing work plus masterfully examined American, British, Dutch, and French terror and disaster case studies." --Richard Sylves, University of Delaware "This book will find a ready market because there is a growing debate on the meaning of resilience. Scholars and officials are struggling to understand the depth of the concept in order to translate it into policy objectives. The contributors provide a broad foundation for the debate and show why resilience is so important." --William L. Waugh, Jr., Georgia State University "For a society that continues to be challenged by severe events, Designing Resilience is a rich, practice-oriented compilation that incorporates recent trends in this growing specialty. The numerous case examples reflect the authors'accumulated wealth of experience, clearly derived from time spent in the trenches of rebuilding or sustaining communities. This text is a useful reference for anyone involved in emergency management and policy making, and it should have widespread use in numerous fields, including psychology, public and international affairs, public administration, political science, emergency and disaster management, international security, and information technology." --Journal of Homeland Security and Emergency Management
