Kyle Farmbry recently published Crisis, Disaster, and Risk: Institutional Response and Emergence.  The publisher, M.E. Sharpe, describes the book as an exploration of the interactions of theories of risk with natural disasters, health crises and crises in the areas of science and technology. Using organizational frameworks developed exclusively by the author, it provides a series of best practices and lessons related to each of the emergency and crisis situations covered. These lessons will help both students and practitioners – those learning about and actively reacting to crises – respond to these crises more effectively.
