Katrina: The Ruin and Recovery of New Orleans

( 1 )

Overview

Katrina did not end when the hurricane's eye passed New Orleans on August 29, 2005. It did not end when the last of the flood waters were pumped out of a city below sea level and residents who had fled to 50 states began to return. The worst urban disaster in American history was not over as the 2006 hurricane season opened in June and the Army Corps frantically raced to complete rudimentary repairs to the levee system that had failed so catastrophically.

Overview

Katrina did not end when the hurricane's eye passed New Orleans on August 29, 2005. It did not end when the last of the flood waters were pumped out of a city below sea level and residents who had fled to 50 states began to return. The worst urban disaster in American history was not over as the 2006 hurricane season opened in June and the Army Corps frantically raced to complete rudimentary repairs to the levee system that had failed so catastrophically. In 192 pages packed with images of destruction and revival, this book hints at the scope of the devastation and at the resilience of a city that has resolved to survive it. Katrina was much more than wind and flooding. Lives were torn apart as surely as houses and landscapes. Nor can it rightly be called a natural disaster. Engineering failures underlay the levee breaches and politics clouded and confounded the relief and recovery efforts.
