Summary
"The articles in this volume address some of the more serious issues raised by Katrina, including the responsibility of public officials to ensure that the system works, the president's role in disasters and his role in the Katrina disaster, disaster myths and the erroneous assumptions that underlie our current programs, emergent and prosocial behavior in disasters, individual and community vulnerabilities, the sheltering and housing of very large numbers of evacuees, physical and mental health impacts of disaster, the need to manage hazardous areas better, the need to promote disaster resiliency to facilitate recovery, the need to mitigate hazards and ensure against losses, the need to develop national partnerships for disaster recovery, the need to organize emergency response and emergency management effectively to ensure agility and discipline, and the need to work effectively within the nations's federal system with its shared responsibility for homeland security and emergency management" -- p.9
