Product Description


"An excellent guide to the field of natural hazards: comprehensive, thorough, and well-organized."-David Alexander, University of Massachusetts "The author's master of this complicated subject is reflected in the way the book is clearly written and well-structured...an important accomplishment considering that the subject continues to cry out for debate and action."-Environmental Politics "One area that is particularly appreciated by both myself and students is the overview of what a hazard is...the manner in which each hazard is covered, in terms of causes followed by a series of options for mitigation, in both developed and developing countries, is very useful."-C. Holt, University College Northampton "In this third edition of "Environmental Hazards, Keith Smith has fashioned yet futher improvements to what was already a highly readable, well-informed, broad ranging, and accessible text. Essential reading for anyone interested in environmental hazards."-David K.C. Jones, London School of Economics "This completely revised edition blends physical and social science to provide a balanced, contemporary introduction to major natural events, technological accidents, and aspects of global environmental change that threaten humans and what they value."-"Natural Hazards Observer, January 2005

This book is well written and easy to understand. I bought it used, but it looked basically new.
