About The Book
The authors critically examine vulnerability as a concept that is vital to the way we understand the impact and magnitude of disasters. The book is a counterbalance to technocratic approaches that limit themselves to simply looking at natural phenomena. Through the notion of vulnerability the authors stress the importance of social processes and human-environmental interactions as causal agents in the making of disasters. They critically examine what renders communities unsafe, a condition they argue depends primarily on the relative position of advantage or disadvantage that a particular group occupies within a society’s social order.
