Innovative Thinking in Risk, Crisis, and Disaster Management

eBook - 2012
Rate this:
The book's chapters provide ideas and action plans for risk, crisis, and disaster management in a risk society, based on late-modern approaches such as technological citizenship; delegated authority; and exploitation of 'lay' knowledge. Written in accessible style, with technical terms defined and explained, this book offers genuinely blue-sky thinking that will be of interest to academics, students, and commentators. Primarily, though, it will be of value to practitioners in the emergency services, industry and commerce, and to planners and policy makers at national and local government level.
