Hurricane Katrina and the Redefinition of Landscape discusses the ways in which Hurricane Katrina and other such disasters that follow in the wake of large-scale natural phenomena have the ability to alter the physical and social landscapes of an area. Miller and Rivera emphasize the importance of the physical landscape and explore the ways in which any alteration to the landscape affects the economic, cultural, and political lives of the survivors. Through the example of Hurricane Katrina and the resulting devastation to New Orleans, Miller and Rivera suggest that economic and political policies should be more reflective of each unique physical location, thereby aiding in the development and sustainability of different cultures, economies, and political landscapes.
