"'The author's master of this complicated subject is reflected in the way the book is clearly written and well-structured...an important accomplishment considering that the subject continues to cry out for debate and action.' - Environmental Politics (on the 2nd Edition
) 'In this third edition of Environmental Hazards
, Keith Smith has fashioned yet further improvements to what was already a highly readable, well-informed, broad ranging and accessible text. Essential reading for anyone interested in environmental hazards.' - Professor David K.C. Jones, London School of Economics 'An excellent guide to the field of natural hazards: comprehensive, thorough and well-organized.' - David Alexander, University of Massachusetts 'One area that is particularly appreciated by both myself and students is the overview of what a hazard is...the manner in which each hazard is covered, in terms of causes followed by a series of options for mitigation, in both developed and developing countries, is very useful.' - C. Holt, University College Northampton (on the 2nd Edition)" --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
