From the Publisher"Too many are unprepared to handle crisis; still more are ignorant of post-crisis dynamics. This book allows us to understand the issues involved and to choose the appropriate roadmaps in the post-event phase. Do not miss these illuminating case studies: they could - tonight or tomorrow - tip the balance between fiasco and success."
Patrick Lagadec, Director of Research, Ecole Polytechnique, Paris
"This volume laudably focuses on a relatively neglected topic: the specifically political dimensions of crisis and disasters. The authors also make a good case that political elites and organizations - more than citizens - have to be held accountable for their behavior, since they are the locus of pre-crisis policy decisions. Another worthwhile emphasis is on the differential effects of crisis management on politicians and public officials."
E. L. Quarantelli, Professor Emeritus, Disaster Research Center, University of Delaware
"This is an excellent edited volume on post-crisis politics and governance...Highly recommended" --Choice
