"I am highly impressed by this work. It is thorough, yet readable, and exceptionally well organized. The nine multiple-author chapters cohere unusually well for an edited volume. ...I highly recommend this book. ... The writing travels deftly between theory and practice."
--Charles Eadie, Journal of the American Planning Association, Autumn, 1999

"...a valuable book... A remarkable merit of the volume (a rather rare one in my experience) is the high quality of all its chapters. ...Nowhere do the authors indulge in unnecessary technical jargon and, whenever used, specialised terms are clearly defined. ... an excellent book, which I strongly recommend to land-use planners, emergency managers, students of hazards and risks in different disciplines, civil protection personnel and volunteers, journalists, media people, as well as any one intrigued by the challenge of building sustainable communities and a sustainable world."
-- The Journal of Contingencies and Crisis Management, September 2001
