About this Item

A fine copy of the first hard cover edition, lacking a dust-jacket, perhaps as issued, inscribed and signed by Elaine {Enarson} on the title page. The text is wholly unmarked, pristine, and the binding remarkably bright and fresh in appearance. A brilliant copy. Bookseller Inventory # 017431

About this title

Synopsis:

Natural disasters push ordinary gender disparities to the extreme--leaving women not only to deal with a catastrophe's aftermath, but also at risk for greater levels of domestic violence, displacement, and other threats to their security and well-being. Elaine Enarson presents a comprehensive assessment, encompassing both theory and practice, of how gender shapes disaster vulnerability and resilience, focusing on the United States.

  • Women and Disasters in the United States.
  • Representations of Women in Disasters.
  • How Gender Changes Disaster Studies.
  • Measuring Vulnerability and Capacity.
  • Health and Well-Being.
  • Violence Against Women.
  • Intimacy and Family Life.
  • Houses and Homes.
  • Work and Workplaces.
  • Grassroots Groups and Recovery.
  • Building Disaster Resilience.
  • Fighting for the Future.
  • Appendix: A Guide to Resources.
