Each section begins with an alphabetical listing by country of the worst recorded events by type, a chronology of relevant disasters by category, and an introduction. In addition to providing the basic facts of each disaster, the text offers important background information on each event and explores its ultimate impact on humans and the environment. Compelling eyewitness accounts are also presented."--BOOK JACKET.Davis, Lee is the author of 'Natural Disasters ', published 2007 under ISBN 9780816070015 and ISBN 0816070016.
