What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

"The 15 articles comprising this nicely edited volume were delivered at a symposium of the AAAS in 1962 devoted to the analysis of psychological stress precipitated by the threat of impending disaster. Disaster is defined in the naturalistic sense of great upheavals of wind, earth,and water, nuclear attack or threat, strange environments of space, captivity and military occupation and disease or death. The writers are psychiatrists, psychologists, and sociologists whose reports are clearly written accounts of the precipitating events, and the behavioral and psychological reactions they produced.... The result is a book of wide general interest to both professional and layman." Choice
